Just for completeness..
I believe your code should end with
sleep 1 while $running; close(NAMES);

I'd always prefer a self written solution above an existing module, if it's not too complicated.
You'll learn this way, besides using an existing module can sometimes be more expensive than write your own code,
since you'll have to learn the api and possibly to deal with unexpected behaviour.

I'm not sure about what you're going to do (30000 planets??), but if you'll have to fetch the data regularly it would perhaps be senseful to save the modification time of the web sites along with your data, and compare later just the modification time of the online pages with your locally stored data.
