This discovery was one of Kepler's most famous, if for no other reason than it made sci-fi into sci-reality. The planet, Kepler-16b, orbits a binary star system, just like Star Wars' Tatooine.
It resembles Saturn in its mass and gaseous makeup, and orbits at a distance analogous to Venus' orbit in our solar system. The two stars in the system are 20% and 69% as massive as our sun, respectively. Since their combined mass is still less than our sun, Kepler's Venusian orbit is likely chilly, placing it outside the habitable zone.
This system was also special because of the way it was discovered--it was thrown on the trash heap, because eclipsing binaries fog up the data. Read more about the hunt for Kepler-16b in our interview with astronomer Laurance Doyle
