Now NASA too? The Eskimo Nebula and the Siamese Twins Galaxy are the first to be de-named. Eskimo means "a person who laces a snowshoe". Siamese Twins is a reference to the famous Siamese-American conjoined twins Chang and Eng Bunker.
Distant cosmic objects such as planets, galaxies, and nebulae are sometimes referred to by the scientific community with unofficial nicknames. As the scientific community works to identify and address systemic discrimination and inequality in all aspects of the field, it has become clear that certain cosmic nicknames are not only insensitive, but can be actively harmful. NASA is examining its use of unofficial terminology for cosmic objects as part of its commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion.
