Guess who found the location of Superman’s home planet of Krypton? Oh yeah, we already told you. The coolest super-scientist in New York– Neil deGrasse Tyson.
The “real” Krypton is in the Corvus constellation, about 27.1 light years from Earth, orbiting the red dwarf star LHS 2520, Tyson determined.
The Hayden Planetarium director tracked down the locale based on information provided to him by DC Comics, which was doing a story on Superman’s search for his home planet in the pages of “Action Comics.”
I nearly fell out of my chair when Neil told Jon Stewart that The Daily Show globe at the beginning of the program is spinning the wrong way. Too fuckin funny.
