Neil deGrasse Tyson Finds Krypton For Superman

The New York Post reports that media profiled astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, at the request of DC Comics, has found a candidate for Krypton.

The “real” Krypton is in the Corvus constellation, about 27.1 light years from Earth, orbiting the red dwarf star LHS 2520, Tyson determined.

The star, which is smaller and cooler than our sun, can be seen at right ascension 12 hours, 10 minutes, 05.60 seconds, and declination 15 degrees, 04’ 15.66.

Tyson was asked to help with Action Comics #14, out this week, in which Tyson will also appear, as Superman tracks down the location of his home planet. Which is just far enough for the light from the exploding planet to reach Earth in the present.
