Astronomers have discovered a planet that has three suns, something that was long thought to be impossible. (Astronomers argued that the orbits would be too unstable.) Can a planet in a figure eight orbit be far behind?

Speaking about the number eight, I recently wrote an article on Degen’s Eight-Square Identity, namely that the product of two sums of eight squares is equal to the sum of eight squares. We give the explicit expression for this. See, http://www.geocities.com/titus_piezas/ramanujan_page8.html
