K .. slang for a thousand .. "grand" .. long awaited catatonic state .. "pax" .. pretty obvious ..

Talking response from author

while admittedly not nesessarily correct, Gene commented that this was perhaps the best interpretation had had heard to date.

I like the interpretation of "Grand Peace" but K-Pax is a real planet with a real name not given to it by the writer of the book or the screenplay but by the astrophysicists who discovered it. Does anyone know why they named the real planet K-Pax because the other planets around it, Agape and Satori, are also called K-Mon and K-Ril. Does anyone know the meaning of these names??

Re: the meaning of K-PAX

A possibility is that they are called K-### because they are about 1,000 light years away.
