  • 20 exoplanets need names

    20 stars with have exoplanets that should be named.

    IAU (International Astronomical Union) has made a contest for naming the planets .


    The article can be found here :

    The NameExoWorlds contest, organised by the IAU and Zooniverse, is now entering its next stage. The 20 most popular ExoWorlds have been made available for naming proposals from registered clubs and non-profit organisations.
    Should we enter something like Z'Ha'Dum in the contest ?
