NASA Announces Asteroid Naming Contest for Students

Here's Your Chance to Name a Real Asteroid!
OSIRIS-REx mission
Ever want to name a real celestial body? What's a "celestial body" you ask? A celestial object is any object in the observable universe, ie. the sky, and is also known as an astronomical object.

The upcoming NASA OSIRIS-REx mission will bring back samples of the near-Earth asteroid 1999 RQ36 that will hopefully help us learn about the origins of life on Earth!
