image for Giant Planet Weighs Very Little; George Lucas Questioned

Flagstaff, Arizona (Starstuff Daily) - Astronomers at Christopher Lowell Observatory have detected a new planet outside our solar system nearly as large as Jupiter. Located in the constellation Hercules, the planet is nicknamed TrES-4 and possesses the density of balsa wood.

This has some experts wondering how balsa wood, normally native to South America, has found its way to the outer reaches of space. One possible explanation is that the object is really just a scale model made to look like an enormous planet in the constellation Hercules.

The primary suspect in this massive hoax is the US film production company Lucasfilm Ltd. However, company spokesmen have refused to dignify the controversial question with an answer. This raises the question: What are they hiding?
