Star Wars: Tatooine Was Likely Orbiting In the Same Plane As Its Twin Suns
The Bad Astronomer writes: A brand new research of very younger binary stars reveals that exoplanets orbiting them (circumbinary planets) will orbit in the identical airplane as the stars if the two stars are comparatively shut collectively. If the stars are farther aside, the planets might have a perpendicular (polar) orbit round them. This research checked out the protoplanetary disks of mud and gasoline round binaries to attract this conclusion. Extrapolating to fiction, this implies Tatooine in Star Wars was coplanar with its host stars.
