Helping scientists choose names for planets is fun. But what if you could actually help scientists find planets?

This article from The Planetary Society details three different ways in which you can help do just that. We'll detail each over the next few days, but take a peek. Maybe you'll find inspiration for some new names to add to our baby book of names for planets?

New quintuplets just arrived!

OK, that's a little hyperbolic. But astronomers have identified five new planets just 12 light-years away orbiting Tau Ceti.

Check out the story below, then come nominate your favorite names for these planets as more! We're building out a "baby name book" of planets, with the proceeds going to fund real, working science projects!

Visit http://uwingu.com to nominate or vote for those already there!

Nice idea. We'll add it to the upgrades list. By the way, two new grants this week: to SEDS and the Explore Mars.

How much is 100 Billion minus 1,000?

We love all the new theories and ways of estimating the number there might just be out there. Here's the latest write-up penned by +Philip Plait .

We're getting close to a thousand names ready for our "baby name book" for astronomers to use when they get around to naming planets. It looks like we'll need about a hundred billion more!
