NameExoWorlds 2022 Competition (Greece)

To celebrate the 10th anniversary of its Office for Astronomy Outreach (OAO), the International Astronomical Union (IAU) is launching a contest to name 20 exoplanetary systems to be observed by the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST). The competition, NameExoWorlds 2022, seeks to bring together both professional astronomers and the wider public, giving them the opportunity to name the 20 selected exoplanets along with their host stars.

The proposals will go through a two-step process of selection. First, a national selection panel will select a national candidate and two backup names. Then a final selection committee will consider the candidates proposed by each country and select a name for each ExoWorld.

Proposal deadline: December 11, 2022. Learn more through the announcement and the video of the greek selection panel.
