Hyperchannel 58: Name That Planet!

Help decide the names of planets orbiting other stars

A year ago Star Trek fans mobilized in an attempt to have one of Pluto's two newly discovered moons named Vulcan. They lost out to the far more appropriate names Kerberos and Styx. Now Trekkies have another chance to put the name of Spock's home planet into real-world use thanks to the International Astronomical Union and Zooniverse—and this time the potential worlds lie beyond our solar system.

Find out more and submit your naming suggestions.
