Tattooine is Not the Center of the Star Wars Universe

All this time, we thought every important event in the Star Wars universe happened on Tattoine.  The truth is much more mundane … it turns out that every planet is Tattoine.  At least a version of it, anyway.

Astronomers now say that Tattoine-like planets are probably the most common type of habitable world in our galaxy.  I think they mean the dual-sun element, not necessarily the oppressive desert or even the surfeit of galactic crime bosses.  Here’s hoping there are at least a few Jawas here and there.
