Doomed planet found

A Doomed planet orbiting a distant star has been located. No, not Krypton. The planet is going to be consumed by the star soon, but astronomers are not going to wait up for it.

It's soo lonely in here. Personally I think we'll be taken out by something else before that happens here.

It IS lonely in here. I bet if the new planet WAS Krypton, you'd see a whole mess of comments.

I bet if you'd put up a picture of Earth and said George W. Bush was about to destroy it, you'd get even more comments!

[Thanks for the link though, just the same!]

No comment. This doomed planet is just so far away from me and my needs.
