Superman just got to know home truth

NEW YORK (TIP): Now, Superman knows where exactly he came from.

A noted astrophysicist claimed to have determined the actual location of Superman’s fictional home planet — Krypton.
Krypton is found 27.1 lightyears from Earth, in the southern constellation Corvus, said Neil de-Grasse Tyson, director of the American Museum of Natural History’s Hayden Planetarium in New York. Krypton, which is cooler and smaller than our sun, orbits the red dwarf star LHS 2520, Tyson said. According to the Superman mythos, the superhero was born on Krytpon but was launched toward Earth as an infant by his father, Jor-El , just before the planet’s destruction . After touching down in Kansas , Superman was raised as Clark Kent by a farmer and his wife.

“This is a major milestone in the Superman mythos that gives our super hero a place in the universe,” said DC Comics, the publisher of the Superman series.
