NASA's next celestial target needs a name

NASA's next celestial target needs a name | INTELLIGENT WORLD TODAY | Scoop.it
aving delighted the world with its unprecedented and jaw-dropping photos of Pluto in the summer of 2015, NASA's New Horizons spacecraft is en route for an encore performance with an icy Kuiper Belt object in 2019. There's only one problem: the current name of the next target, (486958) 2014 MU69, doesn't exactly roll of the tongue. To help with this, NASA is boldly inviting the public to come up with some more memorable alternatives.
Al Cannistra's insight:

"It" needs a name - NASA wants suggestions...   any ideas?

How you can drink beer and save the world at the same time

How you can drink beer and save the world at the same time | INTELLIGENT WORLD TODAY | Scoop.it
Relax, drink a beer, and save the Great Barrier Reef -- this Australian social enterprise is looking to the save the world with a brew.
Al Cannistra's insight:

Reminds me of an old story – back in my days of catholic school at a time when they were recruiting for priests and missionaries – the archbishop shared a story about someone he was in the seminary with. Apparently that priest was assigned somewhere in Japan and was new to the language. During his first sermon the parishioners were laughing and giggling but as the Japanese do, they tried to be very polite. The new priest was very frustrated and proceeded to end the mass much faster than would have been normal. Asking the altar boys for an explanation, he was quite exasperated to find out he just told the parish to drink more beer.

 

Wonder if he was reassigned to Australia now?
