    This is an interesting article and makes me wonder if life has the same chance of developing on worlds within a two star system as in one more like ours?

    At first thought I'm thinking no it doesn't. But to tell the truth, I really can't think of any real good reasons why not. Since most of the stars in our galaxy are in binary systems, it seems to be a very good question to be thinking about.

    I have a two part question if someone doesn't mind educating me.

    Do all planets in a solar system revolve around their sun in the same direction? If they do, do we know what causes them to revolve in the same direction?

    Erm, googling yielded results that mentions angular momentum and the coalescing of gases during the formation of the sun and the solar system. I'm not sure if I understand it entirely.
