Bailey Strenn

Bailey Strenn, age 17

Virginia, United States

Proposed name: Sacagawea

Justification for the name: "The asteroid should be named Sacagawea because it is guiding our highly trained scientist further into understanding our vast solar system just as Sacagawea led Lewis and Clark, two brilliant explorers, on their journey."

What do you want to see next in space? "I want to see evidence of life on another planet."
