NASA just announced a contest for students to name an asteroid:


The OSIRIS-REx Asteroid Sample Return Mission is going to an asteroid to return a sample to Earth. Instead of traveling to asteroid 1999 RQ36, the asteroid’s current name, we’re asking youth under 18 for help to find a new name!"


Contest starts Tuesday September 4, 2012. The deadline is Sunday December 2, 2012.
