Rogue Planet Discovered in Distant Space
A large planet with no home star was discovered roaming an area of space 100 light years from Earth.
Hank brings us the news of a unique astronomical discovery - a rogue planet. He also allays our fears of an apocalyptic collision with Earth. So, this new planet is awesome, but it needs a different name - CFBDSIR J214947.2-040308.9 isn't really cutting it.
