Thank God for that. I thought for a moment Rod Stewart was going to have another kid.

:lol: Yeah, I kept the original title, because it was humorously misleading. But I find the stars in the sky way more fascinating than people stars.

Oh, agreed. And this is just fascinating, although the story was kind of sparse. Am I reading it right that they're guessing that the stars have had some sort of gaseous outflow and that's what's going to form these new planets? Or am I inferring too much? Normally my go-to place for this stuff is Space.com, but I didn't see the story there.

It's because they were irresponsible and didn't use starcondoms. Now they're going to have new planets and the next thing you know, the whole neighborhood goes to hell....

reminds me of a meeting I was in recently. The manager wanted to have a new set of rewards called the 'Nova' awards (for new). I almost lost it; a Nova is a star that explodes in a blaze of glory, then burns out...like employees, y'know?...;)

That was the impression I got, as well. And you're right, the story did seem sort of sparse.
