This knowledge-base article, intended for people looking for 32-bit drivers, reads: “A system running Microsoft Windows 10...

Tatooine Like Planet Gets The Boot By Twin Suns

In “Star Wars,” the planet Tatooine orbited twin stars. Now, a new study suggests that, in the real world, twin suns may act like Death Stars, either destroying worlds or hurling them into interstellar space. This finding suggests that these destructive stellar pairs could be producing rogue planets that drift through the Milky Way unbound to any star, the authors of the new research said in a statement. Although Earth’s solar system has only one star (the sun), most stars like...

Are Saturn’s Rings Younger Than The Dinosaurs?

Some of Saturn’s icy moons may have been formed after many dinosaurs roamed the Earth. New computer modeling of the Saturnian system suggests the rings and moons may be no more than 100 million years old. Saturn hosts 62 known moons. All of them are influenced not only by the gravity of the planet, but also by each other’s gravities. A new computer model suggests that the Saturnian moons Tethys, Dione and Rhea haven’t seen the kinds of changes in their orbital tilts that are typical...
