Name Your Own Planet!

The PlanetQuest Collaboratory, a privately funded project by Gutelius (Stanford University) and Doyle (SETI Institute in California), will turn your personal computer into a planet searching machine through a [email protected]-like network. Unlike [email protected], the interface is more interactive and connects to potentially 10 dedicated telescopes, compared to SETI’s single shared telescope. Your chances to find & name your own planet? 1:3000 – 1:5000.
