But scientists could not found an earth like planet or the rocky planet orbiting the binary star.
According to the mathematical analysis and simulations performed by Ben Bromley, astrophysics from University of Utah and Scott Kenyon of the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory, it is possible for a rocky planet to orbit the binary stars.
The press release from the University of Utah read, the simulations “show that Earthlike, solid planets such as Tatooine likely exist and may be widespread.”
The study reveals that the asteroid size rocks clump together to from planets and can orbit binary stars for thousands of years without collision.
“We are saying you can set the stage to make these things, it is just as easy to make an Earthlike planet around a binary star as it is around a single star like our sun. So we think that Tatooines may be common in the universe,” said Bromley.
The study is published with the title “Planet formation around binary stars: Tatooine made easy.”
It is submitted to Astrophysical Journal for review.
