So with news from Nasa recently that a new solar system has been discovered, a potentially life-supporting system, Nasa didn’t waste time in asking for suggestions for what the seven planets of the Trappist-1 solar system should be called.
The Internet has blasted off with many ideas!
Twitter users have suggested a number of, shall we say, interesting names for the star and its orbiting planets, including Planet McPlanetface and Gasy McGasface, the characters from Friends, and ‘Far from Trump’ 1-7. Even the 7 Dwarves from Snow White have come up!

What do you think these planets should be called. Some think perhaps they should be named after Star Trek characters, Chekov, Sulu, Uhura, Scotty, Spock, Captain Kirk, and McCoy

Since we have members of the Vernon Figure Skating Club coming in today to tell us about the Wizard Of Oz On Ice Show coming up, I was thinking these new planets could be called Dorothy, Toto, Tin Man, Lion, Scarecrow, The Wizard and one of the Witches?
