Planet Xena?


If the resolution is approved, the 12 planets in our solar system listed in order of their proximity to the sun would be Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Ceres, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto, Charon, and the provisionally named 2003 UB313. Its discoverer, Michael Brown of the California Institute of Technology, nicknamed it Xena after the warrior princess of TV fame, but it likely would be rechristened something else later, the panel said.

    Where’s Zefram Cochrane when you need him? :)

  2. […] More on Planet Xena’s discoverer. […]

  3. Why should Charon be a planet? Doesn’t it orbit Pluto? If it doesn’t orbit Pluto, then it should be a planet or Planetod. I like the Greek Sound of Xena (I believe it means welcome) but another name with classical roots could be found like Athena or Hades. If these names are used for astroids–re-name them. Then there is the Moon Grabriella–Didn’t Atena have a pet owl with a funny name?
