Reliable sources for term 'Mini-Neptune'[edit]

It seems 2-3 websites randomely used term 'Mini-Neptune' and article is created out of it. I don't find any sources to identify that this term is accepted and used by Astronomers. neo (talk) 14:20, 26 May 2013 (UTC)

"Gas dwarf" seems to be a more common term. There's also an article on that topic, so I'm not sure why this one even exists. 203.57.211.237 (talk) 23:59, 17 January 2017 (UTC)

Merge with Gas dwarf article[edit]

This article, and the Gas dwarf one, are clearly referring to the same type of object. This article even gives "gas dwarf" as a synonym for "mini-Neptune" (while, strangely enough, linking to that article at the exact same time). Each page has some information on the topic that the other doesn't though, so I think it would be worth taking the best parts of each article and merging under one of the two names. 203.57.211.237 (talk) 00:10, 18 January 2017 (UTC)
