    NOT A TEACHER

    I think you should skip the word "planet". I am not sure though but whatever "planet earth" or "earth planet" sounds a bit awkward to me. I am expecting an input from some experienced.

    The rule is: you can say planet Earth or just Earth, but not Earth planet.

    Don't leave a space before a comma, full stop, question mark or exclamation mark.

    Re: Planet earth !!

    Well, we've given you the rule about planets. Why don't you give us some more examples of two nouns together that are confusing you and we'll try to help.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
