You know those somewhat shady “buy a star for your loved one” gifts that used to be all the rage a while ago? Star Trek and Heroes star George Takei got something like it when the International Astronomical Union’s Committee on Small Body Nomenclature approved that an asteroid between Mars and Jupiter be renamed the 7307 Takei in his honor. And, since the committee is an official body, the astronomer community will actually be referring to this asteroid as the 7307 Takei. For all time! So hot. And so ultra nerdy.
