New Star System Discovered — It’s Crazy Far But the Third-Closest to Us

Space is huuuuuge, but it gets a tiny bit smaller each time we discover something new that we can name, classify, and tell everyone about. The latest is exciting, because it's been a very long time since we've seen anything like it. It's a new star system -- a field of stars revolving around one another -- and it's the closest one we've found in nearly a century. It's also the third-closest to our Sun. While we've been busy demoting our own Solar System's planets into ice dwarfs, then letting William Shatner name the moons, this binary system's been floating out there beyond our knowledge. Until now. Hit the jump to find out how.
