GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. - How you would like to help name a planet?
Uwingo, a new company working to raise money for space research, exploration and education, says you can help do just that.
When new planets are discovered beyond the solar system, they often get boring designations such as HD 85512b or Gliese 667Cc. Now, Uwingu wants to create a Baby Planet Name Book, full of more people friendly options.
For 99 cents apiece, you can nominate any name you like to join the new planet name registry, and you can also vote for your favorites among the list.
