Uwingu's Exoplanet Names
Astronomers believe that over 160 billion planets orbit stars in our galaxy. Uwingu’s first crowdsourcing campaign built a list of names contributed by the public for these worlds.
Names could be up to 50 characters, from any language or culture, so long as they weren’t profane or pejorative. People nominated names honoring their friends, colleagues, heroes, or hometown and voted on names nominated by others. Each person nominating a name received a downloadable certificate of nomination. Each nomination and vote and helped fuel The Uwingu Fund, providing grants to space scientists, space educators, and space projects in this time of government cutbacks.
