Faltam dois

Researchers believe they've found a first: a planet with four suns. Discovered by Kian Jek and Robert Gagliano, members of the crowdsourced astronomy site Planet Hunters, the planet revolves around a pair of suns, with another pair of stars orbiting them. The planet — confirmed by the Keck telescopes in Hawaii — is less than 5,000 light years away and over six times the size of Earth.
