  • Real-Life Astrophysicist 'Finds' SUPERMAN's Home Planet

    A prominent astrophysicist has pinned down a real location for Superman's fictional home planet of Krypton.

    Krypton is found 27.1 light-years from Earth, in the southern constellation Corvus (The Crow), says Neil deGrasse Tyson, director of the American Museum of Natural History's Hayden Planetarium in New York City. The planet orbits the red dwarf star LHS 2520, which is cooler and smaller than our sun.

    Tyson performed the celestial sleuthing at the request of DC Comics, which wanted to run a story about Superman's search for his home planet. : Real-Life Astrophysicist 'Finds' SUPERMAN's Home Planet
