Thanks, @manu-chroma! Top results is an interesting idea.. I know we're going to have a fair amount of ambiguity even for common entities like Jupiter--I'm of two minds about this because top entries would be most useful for others potentially using our API but for the frontend, I think we really just need a thumbnail and two-three sentence description to one place. Honestly, I can't think of how to do that now other than a fair amount of manual massaging of the data after we run it the first time.
I suppose then it might make sense for the API to return top results and the frontend to just take the top result--and if it's wrong, we can follow up afterward and correct it.
Does that seem like a reasonable solution? Thanks again for following up on this.
