As far as impressing your potential new boss goes, discovering a planet on day three of your internship at NASA is up there. That's what happened to 17-year-old Wolf Cukier while helping out at the space agency in the United States. He was checking images from its super-strength satellite when he noticed something strange.

I saw an interview of him on the local CT news last week. He seems to be a down-to-earth person, quite grounded in spite of all the attention he was getting.

imo, good news for our future.

Don't tell him that he will be expected to save the world (since we haven't).

I suspect he already knows.

Will they name it after him? That would be cool to have a planet named after you.

Like Planet Bob.
