I suspect the automatic voice which reads this phrase has picked the wrong pronuncition of the word planet. It sounds like the definite form of ett plan.

Yes, it's like that any time it says planet on here. I'm assuming there's no syntactic evaluation involved in the TTS preprocessing.

Is "en planet" proper pronunciation /en plan├ęt/ (stress on last syllable)?

Re-recording

The voice is not quite perfect on this sentence, as of August 7th, 2017, so I've taken the liberty of re-recording it.

As many others have noted in this thread and elsewhere, stressing PLAnet means "the plane". The stress should be on the second syllable.

Please find a correct recording on http://duolingo.vydea.io/87628c248b0c4640b9aa51e2329999db.mp3
