Superman’s home planet ‘Krypton’ located?
New York : Now, Superman knows where exactly he came from. A noted astrophysicist claimed to have determined actual location of Superman’s fictional home planet — Krypton. Krypton is found 27.1 light-years from Earth, in the southern constellation Corvus, said Neil deGrasse Tyson, director of the American Museum of Natural History’s Hayden Planetarium in New York City. Krypton, which is cooler and smaller than our sun, orbits the red dwarf star LHS 2520, Tyson was quoted as saying by the SPACE.com. The planetary details will be given in a soon to be published Superman book — Star Light, Star Bright. According to the Superman mythos, the superhero was born on Krytpon but was launched toward Earth as an infant by his father, Jor-El, just before the planet’s destruction. After touching down in Kansas, Superman was raised as Clark Kent by a farmer and his wife.
Harrison Ford open to ‘Star Wars’ return?
London : Actor Harrison Ford may reprise his character Hans Solo in the forthcoming Disney-made sequel of the “Star Wars”. The 70-year-old, who played the character in the first three movies of the sci-fi franchise from 1977 to 1983, is said to be considering reprising his role in the recently announced 2015 sequel, reported Sun Online. “Harrison is open to the idea of doing the movie and he’s upbeat about it, all three of them (Ford, Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher) are,” a source said. However, Ford has previously expressed disdain for the character, saying he did not find him interesting. “As a character, he was not so interesting to me,” Ford had said. Disney purchased Lucasfilm, the company behind the movie series, helmed by George Lucas – last month, and has revealed plans for at least three more films in the franchise. “For the past 35 years, one of my greatest pleasures has been to see Star Wars passed from one generation to the next. I’ve always believed that Star Wars could live beyond me, and thought it was important to set up the transition during my lifetime,” Lucas had said.
