Despite having three stellar companions, KOI-5Ab orbits a single star, KOI-5A, once every five days. This host star is caught in a mutual orbit with a nearby star called KOI-5B, and the two twirl around each other once every 30 years. A more distant star, KOI-5C orbits this pair once every 400 years.

astronomers see a dying galaxy for the first time

this distant galaxy is ejecting cataclysmic amounts of stellar material, possibly due to a collision with another galaxy, which means it no longer has material for creating new stars

Fish and rice are actually pretty symbiotic. The farmers put the fish in the rice ponds to control pests that would eat the rice plants and the fish in turn fertilize the plants with their poop.
