Rupert discovered?

Douglas Adams fans will no doubt get the reference; I'm talking about the discovery of a tenth planet in the solar system. The delightfully hospitable planet is thought to be a frozen ball of methane approximately the same size as Pluto.

And in other space news, the lightsaber owned by Luke Skywalker (or rather, the prop that was used by Mark Hamil during the filming of the first three "Star Wars" movies), was auctioned for an impressive $263,852. Darth Vader's lightsaber (or rather, the prop that was.. yada yada yada) only brought in $155,673.

Considering the tendency of humanity towards fiction at the moment, I wouldn't be surprised if we soon hear about the two guys who bought these things challenging each other to fake-lightsaber battles and selling the footage on the Internet.
