New Planet Discovered

Scientists have confirmed the discovery of a new planet 9 billion miles from the sun. It's bigger than Pluto, and is apparently an Ice Planet.

When I think of an Ice Planet, only one good name for it comes to mind. I think the new planet should be named "Hoth." How cool would that be.

:D

just exactly how many times is a 'new' 10th planet going to be announced.
I heard something like this about a year ago, all over the local news here....

It is cool though.

Well the official term for a planet in a binary star system is a "Tatooine Planet" meaning it has two bright stars near it, or "suns."

Wouldn't be the first Star Wars influenced name for a space term. :)
