If you discovered a dwarf planet, what would you name it? Something cool like "Unicron"? Something nerdy like "Gimli"? Or would you let that poor little planet drift through space, nameless for more than a decade?
In 2007, astronomers Meg Schwamb, Mike Brown, and David Rabinowitz observed an unknown object in their search for distant solar system bodies. Their discovery, a dwarf planet designated 2007 OR10, measures 955 miles (1,535 kilometers) in diameter and appears deep red in color. Despite its impressive stature, it remains the largest known celestial body without a name.
