Proposed name: Nirrti

Justification for the name: "Nirrti is the hindu goddess of death and corruption.She is also black like (101955) 1999 RQ36 which is dark due to carbonaceous content. Nirrti is described as dark, dressed in dark clothes and her sacrificial shares are dark husks. (101955) 1999 RQ36 is potentially the most hazardous asteroid to earth and nirrti is also related to death and destruction."

What do you want to see next in space? "I would love to see work done on potential sources of alternative energy which are available in space."
