George Takei (Sulu from Star Trek) has now got a place in the stars with an asteroid named after him. If you find one in (in the skies obviously ) you have ten years to name it (why you need so long is beyond me!) Then your name is approved by committee and there you go! your only limit apparently is that you have to be tasteful ( to a point, so to speak) and you cannot honour a political or military figure from the past 100 years (so naming it Tony Blair is out of the question )
If i had a choice, i would name my asteroid Goofy so Pluto has some company. No, actually, something like a band name that John Peel would play, like badger's psychedelic monkey madness.
Try and point that out to the person you love!
