NASA made a big discovery when the agency discovered seven planets orbiting the red dwarf in the Trappist-1 solar system. Since the planets names were basically placeholders taken from the name of the star, NASA decided to search help from Twitter users, asking them to pitch ideas for names of the newly discovered planets. The answers are pretty interesting, to say the least.
At the moment, the planets are known as Trappist-1b, 1c, 1d, 1e, 1f, 1g, and 1h, but that could change soon. The response was massive, with lots of humorous name ideas. The hashtag “#7NamesFor7NewPlanets?” is filled with cool answers.
