If you were hoping to name a planet after yourself, you’re out of luck.
Naming an exoplanetary system is a huge responsibility, so the IAU set forth a list of guidelines to follow.
To begin with, the names should have long-standing cultural, geographic or historical significance. Indigenous names are encouraged, but any team proposing one must be led by a member of an Indigenous community.
추가로, the name of the exoplanet and its host star need to follow the same theme, meaning they must be related in some way.
Teams cannot submit names of people, pets or organizations. Any terms related to political, military or religious activities are also not allowed.
The public can submit their names through 십일월 11, 2022
National vetting processes will take place between November 15 그리고 12 월 15, 2022, and each country will select one proposal along with two backups. 기후, an international committee will review the submissions and choose one for each exoplanet between December 16, 2022, 그리고 3 월 16, 2023.
The winning names will be announced on March 20, 2023.
