<p>NASA's Kepler space telescope recently made the news by finding a planet that orbits a double-star system, a situation that brought to mind the fictional planet Tatooine of the movie Star Wars. On such a planet, if it had a solid surface, you could see a double sunset. <br /><br />This worksheet explores the orbital mechanics of such a system.</p><img src="/view.aspx?si=126766/kepler16b.png" alt="The Orbit of Kepler 16b" align="left"/><p>NASA's Kepler space telescope recently made the news by finding a planet that orbits a double-star system, a situation that brought to mind the fictional planet Tatooine of the movie Star Wars.
