Nominate & Vote For Exoplanet Planet Names

Nominate Exoplanet Names!

Astronomers have discovered that over 160 billion planets orbit stars in our galaxy. They are called exoplanets.

Help us build the first list of names the public wants to see exoplanets named with! Every nomination helps fund space research and education.

Names can be up to 50 characters, and can be anything you like–so long as they aren’t profane or pejorative. Honor your friends, co-workers, kids, heroes, historic figures, or your home town; create a buzz for your favorite musicians, actors, athletes, sports teams, principles, and places the same way!

And as soon as your nomination is complete, we’ll send you a link to download a beautiful certificate of nomination.
