#Space fans! For the 100th anniversary of its foundation, the International Astronomical Union has invited every country to launch a national contest to choose the name for an #exoplanet and the star it orbits – one for each country.
So if you already have a couple of nice-sounding names in mind, you can check out their website: http://www.nameexoworlds.iau.org/ (hover on “Get Involved” to find the page for your country).
@miramarco at least one of these will be named planety mcplanetface
@troubleMoney They'll end up giving that name to the planet, and calling the star Sir David Attenborough
@miramarco hmmm. "Pluto" sounds kind of nice, doesn't it?
