SPACE fans have had a field day on social media after they were asked to submit names for a proposed Nasa probe to Uranus.
An unofficial Twitter account promoting the space agency’s future missions requested suggestions from its followers on Saturday.
The account, Ice Giant Missions, shared some of the funniest replies as floods of people got in touch with tongue-in-cheek proposals.
Referencing the now-infamous “Boaty McBoatface” online poll, one of the most popular answers was “Probey McProbeface.”
Others included “Bootylicious”, “Deep Dive”, “Touranus” and a nod to a joke in The Simpsons in the form of “Seymore Butts”.
Some submitters got a little more creative with acronyms that spell out rude words.
Popular among them were “Advanced New Uranus Space mission (A.N.U.S.)” and “Better Uranus Telemetry Tracking (B.U.T.T.)”.
