Mr. Rogers Memorialized

The moon is Waxing Gibbous

with an asteroid.

Actually, this story has been at Space.com for some time, but I’m just getting to entering it in here now. It seems that there’s a group of scientists who are allowed to name celestial objects and they quite often name them after people they wish to honor. Well, a couple of these folks were Mr. Rodgers fans and they decided to memorialize him by naming an asteroid in his honor. This is not an honor that can be purchased or that is given lightly, by the way. These guys are pretty serious about this stuff. And, I think it’s really cool that they decided to honor someone who meant so much to me as a kid this way.
