As Always, Life Imitates Gerry Anderson

It’s too bad Ed Bishop isn’t still around; there would have been a role for him here somewhere:

TWO PLANETS sharing one orbit. “Buried in the flood of data from the Kepler telescope is a planetary system unlike any seen before. Two of its apparent planets share the same orbit around their star. If the discovery is confirmed, it would bolster a theory that Earth once shared its orbit with a Mars-sized body that later crashed into it, resulting in the moon’s formation.”

What do you mean it’s unlike any seen before?
