The newly discovered gas giant Kepler-16b, a Saturn-sized planet 200 light-years away .which like Star Wars’ Tatooine orbits two stars, has an orbiting moon that this planet might harbor ET life. Kepler-16b orbits a pair of stars with about two-thirds and one-fifth the mass of the sun, respectively.
The moon's “summer" season could receive approximately the same amount of sunlight as Mars, a planet with temperatures ranging between 68 and -124 degrees Fahrenheit. During its “winter” phase it would still be gathering more than six times the sunlight than Jupiter’s Europa, a prime life candidate in our Solar System where the average surface temperature is -276 degrees Fahrenheit.
