    Very cool. Screw theories on planet formation- the 3 star system was probably two or more solar systems that collided.

    They say "Tattooine like" but then go on to say that it's a gas giant. Yay, 3 successful stars and one failed one.

    But it's in Cygnus, which isn't that far away. The light given from the suns won't give a solar panel anything extra (Except for the amount of daytime that MAY be observed). What you need to look at is how much gamma and x-ray is being emitted there.

    Finding a planet with multiple suns is quite tough - Unless it's an unstable gas giant. Imagine how often it's Aort Cloud showers shit down in that star system - The meteor impacts alone would stop life from evolving.

    But yeah, Neat. We'll only see multiple suns from the bridge of a starship. And if that starship should be called the "USS Celerity" then my plan will have worked :)
