Cyprus votes for a name for an exoplanet and its star
CNA - Athena Arsalidou - CYPRUS/Nicosia 08/11/2019 12:41



The people of Cyprus have the unique opportunity to vote for the name of their choice to be given to an exoplanet and its star, following the Cyprus Space Exploration Organisation’s (CSEO) accession to the International Astronomical Union (IAU) last year.

The campaign, which started in August, will be finalized in mid December when the IAU will announce the final names of Cyprus’ star and planet, as well as the names chosen by other countries for other solar systems.

After receiving hundreds of nominations the CSEO Naming Committee has selected the best names that relate to the history and culture of Cyprus for the final vote.
