Hey Space Placers!
Want to adopt an exoplanet?????
Well, now you can. This is NOT like some of the enterprises where you can purchase real estate on the Moon, name a star, etc.
Uwingu is conducting the campaign to help raise funds for research. You can learn more about it here http://www.prlog.org/12128302-uwingu-launches-worlds-first-adopt-planet-campaign.html.
One must understand however that only the International Astronomical Union (IAU) has the authority to officially name all objects in the solar system and observable Universe. IAU recently sent out a press release to explain the procedure http://www.iau.org/public_press/news/detail/iau1301/.
