What's that Mr Sock? A new planet you say?

A new planet was found in a man's sock today. It's called Plastron.

It's red with some greenish spots on it; the planet not the sock. The sock is a greenish colour, probably used to be black but washed too many times and is faded. It was found in his wardrobe. He thought he'd lost it.

The man, called George, said, "I just opened the cupboard door and there it was, my sock. When I shook it something fell out onto the floor which turned out to be a planet. I named it Plastron. Could we send a space mission to visit it, or something?"

The European Space Agency said, "We could probably get a mission underway in say five years. We'll get to work on it now."

That's it. That's the whole story; man finds planet in sock. Called Planet Plastron. Manned landing in five years.
