    A moon might not be all that cold… geothermal heating as is observed on Titan and Io could stir things up a bit.

    What they didn’t get into in the bit of the conference I watched was the place of these types of stars in the main sequence.  Is it likely that they are of a generation that would have heavier elements in the surrounding debris, or not?

    You know what would be totally awesome?  This planet doing figure eights, swinging by each star at opposite points of its’ orbit, like a spirograph!

    And it will only take 5.329.000 years to Voyager 1 get there…

    I see what you did in the headline.

    Not just Tatooine.  How about Magrathea?
