      Hi Rachel! Awesome questions coming from you =) No I haven’t ever discovered a new planet or anything like that. My work is mostly theoretical – so I discover ideas rather than things. But, I do have a friend who discovered a moon around Uranus and he got to name it! Can you imagine that we as yet know so little about our own solar system that we are still discovering moons?
