In the Stars

An asteroid between Mars and Jupiter has been renamed 7307 Takei in honor of the actor, George Takei, by its two Japanese discoverers–also fans of Star Trek.
He seems, as expected, pretty elated:

“I am now a heavenly body,” Takei, 70, said Tuesday, laughing. “I found out about it yesterday. … I was blown away. It came out of the clear, blue sky _ just like an asteroid.”

Congratulasians, George! May you be starry forever.

Watch Takei as Kaito Nakamura tonight on the season finale of Heroes. He’s teaching Hiro how to use his samurai sword, at long last!
