Gavin Wills

Gavin Wills, age 9

Illinois, United States

Proposed name: Polymatheia

Justification for the name: "Polymatheia in Greek mythology is a muse of knowledge. Polymatheia is an appropriate name because NASA wants to travel to the asteroid and back to gain knowledge of near-Earth objects."

What do you want to see next in space? "I want to see a person take the first steps on Mars. I want to see exploration of resources in space that can be used to provide support for a human colony on the Moon and beyond."
