ISU MSS15 student Cristian Lazar made a proposal to name an asteroid in the SGAC "Name an Asteroid" Campaign. Yesterday its proposal got accepted by the International Astronomical Union (IAU). “The asteroid will carry the name "MarinBica" , name proposed and promoted by myself, after my Astronomy/Astrophysics professor - Marin Dacian BICA - who passed away tragically last year, and I did this action in his honor. And my proposal was selected from other 1500 proposals from around the world. I am so happy ! » said Cristian.
