Home/Astronomy, Uncategorized/NAME AN ASTEROID (after me please!)

From the Space Generation Advisory Council:

Here is your chance to name an asteroid!
SGAC and the NEO PG in collaboration with the Minor Planet Centre (MPC) are excited to offer you the opportunity to name an asteroid! Entering is easy: Send us your entry in 50 words or less how you would like to name an asteroid and why.
The naming contest is open to anyone. Submit your entry by November 30 by telling us your name, age, home country and email. Rules for naming are below.
There are two age groups: under 18, and over 18.
The two winners will be announced around the end of December.

If enough of you send in passionate entries stating that it should be named after me, it would work, right?!

Here’s some more great information on (151834) 2003 FB122 (Chris would definitely be MUCH better).
