Your Answers: What name would you give to a new planet?

In this episode, we hear about new stars and planets discovered thanks to the James Webb Telescope. For this week’s question: “What name would you give one of those new planets?”


I would name it something wacky and weird that no one's ever heard before like Bifdonove or Gelecsie. That is what I would name a new planet.

Amazement because in my opinion outer space  is very amazing and interesting. My dream is also to become an astronaut and I hope to explore new things and make amazing discoveries. I want to build a rocket launcher so people can experiment with gravity on other planets so people can go even further into space. I think that different planets can have different amazements.

Dear NewsDepth,

If I could choose a name to give a planet I would choose Armstrong. After Neil Armstrong, first man on the moon.

If I could name a planet I would name it Plant EH-1958. The EH stands for Edwin Hubble the creator of the Hubble Telescope.  Then the 1958 stands for the year NASA was created.
