EXCITING NEWS (28/7/14) - The International Astronomical Union (IAU), is giving the public the chance to name up to 30 planets outside our solar system all which were discovered before 2009.

This is the first time the naming process has now been opened up to the public. On Wednesday, the IAU, in association with crowd-sourcing veterans Zooniverse, announced a worldwide competition to give "popular names to selected exoplanets along with their host stars".

The idea, in a nutshell, is that any registered astronomical society, club or related non-profit organisation can suggest a name for any of the 305 handpicked planets. The names can be up to 16 letters long and cannot feature living people or names likely to be divisive, or pets. The most popular names will then be put forward to an online public poll in March next year, through the new web platform NameExo World, where up to 30 planets will be christened.
