OH SHIT IT'S WEDNESDAY. I mean... Freenow, noun, Planetary System

Freenow - 2011, n. Freenow a planetary system of 4 [Four] known gas giants orbiting a white dwarf-pulsar binary system.  The two largest planets have several moons apiece whose conditions could be favorable for harboring bacteria if temperatures allowed.  However, very little liquid water has been found thus far.  Surveillance of the system is limited by the slow advancement of interstellar probe technology.
