    Clicking on that first (computer crime) link caused me computer problems – beware!

    About Planet IX, if it exists, it will probably receive a name from Greco-Roman mythology, as all other major planets have. Why not name it for a goddess rather than a god?

    I personally favor Minerva.

      Great idea, something short would be best.

      I’d vote for Hera, Hestia, Iris, or Junk.

        Oops, that was meant to be Juno not Junk.

          Nah, Junk is a great name.

          Rename Pluto to Junk and make the new planet Pluto.

          The ninth planet is, and always has been by definition, Pluto!
