Planet systems Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the World Book Encyclopedia to David S. Pratt, age 13, of St. Paul, Min- nesota, for his question: Do we know that other stars have planet systems? For a long time, astronom- ers suspected that our solar system was not unique in the universe. Then in 1949, a cer- tain pair of twin stars was found to have a third invisible partner most likely a planet. In 1960, another star was found to have a massive, invisible planet. Three years later, a smaller planet belonging' to still another star was discovered. We know that two of the star systems closest to our sun have at least one big planet apiece. Our pinwheelijig galaxy has at least 100 billion starry suns and 99 per cent of them are main sequence stars, that is, their dimensions and other fea- tures can be compared, more or less, with our sun. Modern astronomers assume that our sun 'and its starry relatives con- densed from large clouds of cosmic gases, similar to the hazy nebulas strewn throughout the Milky Way. The generally accepted theory is that the planets of our solar system formed separate orbiting bo- dies as the sun condensed and eventually ignited its nuclear furnace. If this feasible theory is a fact, we can assume that most of the average type stars re- peated the same pattern. Chances are, planetary systems usually form during the birth of a normal star. If this is so, there are billions of other plan- etary systems in our plus uncountable numbers with- in the uncuonted galaxies be- yond our Milky Way. Some ex- perts estimate that our galaxy alone may have at least 600 million planets capable of sup- porting life more or less as we know it on earth. Proving these possibilities is a tedious task. Planets are smaller than stars and shed no light of their own. The nearest stars are between four and 20 light years away and even our best telescopes cannot spot planets at such distances. As- tronomers, however, use ingen- ious indirect methods of detec- tion. For example, every orbit- ing planet has a gravitational effect on its starry sun, caus- ing slight irregularities in its motions. For 30 years they stu- died such patterns in certain binaries twin stars that or- bit about each other. In 1949, .it was announced to the world that the twin star system named Cygni 61 is af- fected by a third invisible part' ner. Its mass is eight times greater than our Jupiter's but it is not massive enough to be a star. In 1960, the star sys- tem Lelande 21185 was found to have a similar giant planet. It is only eight light years from us. In 1963, a planet was found for neighborly Barnard's star, at a distance of six light years. This third planet to be identi- fied beyond our solar system is about H4 times more mas- sive than our giant Jupiter. We cannot at present probe for planets far out into deep space. But the stars sampled in our celestial neighborhood are very promising. We know that three have at least one whopping planet apiece.' And where there is one, most likely there are planetary families. But the smaller planets are be- yond our present range of vis- Questlons asked by children of Herald readers should be mailed to Ask Andy, P.O. Box 765, Huntington Beach, California 92648.

I 0 763 Void The bidding: North East South Pass Pass 1 Pass Pass Opening lead: King of Declarer's approach suf- fered from the lack of a delicate touch in today's hand, and the defenders -were quick to follow the line of attack he so clearly indicated to them. West opened the king of clubs South's four heart contract. The ace was played from dummy -as de- clarer hastened to disnosc of a losing diamond from his hand. The ten of hearts was led and permitted to ride for z finesse. West -won the trick with the king and, since South had apparently revealed his weak spot by his discard at trick one, West promptly shifted to iho queen of diamonds. This was covered by the king and ace, and East continued the suit until de- clarer ruffed in on the third round. The defense now had their b o o k w o diamond tricks and one when the spade finesse failed subsequently, the contract was defeated by one trick. South failed to give himself the best psychological ad- vantage by his play to the Initial trick. He should have discarded a small spade from his hand instead of the diamond. Since a discard is usually made from weakness in a suit, and West did hasten to shift to a diamond when he regained the lead, declarer at little extra cost would have been better advised to steer his opponent down the wrong path. Suppose that South discards a spade at trick one.. Now when West is in, if he returns a spade into declarer's aee-jack, South will even- tually be able to take a diamond d i s c ar d on the dummy's king of spades. That way he will lose only two diamonds and one heart. West should actually exit with a club when he is in, since there is no pressing need for any shift, but the psychological lure of de- clarer's discard is often ir- resistible and South just as well have availed himself of the opportunity, LANCElOT-By Cok.r t P.nn BLONDIE-By Chic Young IT'S JUST THE MIRROR THAT'S SOTTEW A UITTL.E OLDER BEtTLE BAILEY-By Mort Walker U'L ABNER-By Al Capp BECOME RICH-HE I BECOME SPOILT' If HERE'SMAH 5ANGWDGEISAPTTO J{ MILLVUN.'.'NO SANQVJ1DQEKIN COST MORE'N ARCHIE-By Bob Montana OH, NO, SIR!
