Mr Spocks Star Trek home planet may really exist!October 29th, 2008 - 5:06 pm ICT by ANI
London, Oct 29 (ANI): The home planet of Star Treks hero Mr Spock could really exist, as per a new finding.
The find was made through a powerful telescope, which found rocky worlds around the star, Epsilon Eridani, which has Spocks planet Vulcan orbiting in the TV show.
The star Epsilon Eridani is surrounded by two bands of rocky and metal fragments like the asteroid belt that lies beyond Mars in our solar system.
And NASA experts believe if they are there, rocky planets like Earth must be there too, and it boosts that chance that this new solar system could be inhabited.
I wouldnt be surprised if seven or eight planets orbit Epsilon Eridani. One of these could be habitable, the Sun quoted NASA expert Marc Kuchner as saying. (ANI)
