NASA discovers Dark Planet; presumably it is quite evil August 12, 2011

NASA’s Kepler spacecraft has spotted a Jupiter-sized planet over 700 light years away. That’s no big news, since we find planets outside our solar system all the time now.

What is special about this one is that it reflects only 10% of the light from its sun. It’s a dark planet. A gigantic dark planet.

Feel free to theorize on the horrible creatures of unfathomable malice that surely live there. Or, of course, feel free to speculate that though we all assume they’re evil, and even though they look like monsters, they’re actually enlightnened and peaceful. Either way’s good.
