I really think you can figure out for yourself what's not so great about
this "solution". But to go ahead and state the obvious, this is
concatenating wordnet's rdfs:label for these planets directly into a dbpedia
URI. This will only work if the identifiers happen to line up exactly. Which
they do in the case of these 8 (!) entities, but I wouldn't want to rely on
that tactic in general.
