Proposed name: Asterion

Justification for the name: "I think that this asteroid should be named Asterion because the word means ruler of stars. Asterion was a very powerful Minotaur. This name also sounds just like asteroid so it comes into your mind whenever you think about Asterion. The Minotaur lies deep in the middle of a maze just like an asteroid floating in space. Thank you for reading and I hope you choose Asterion."

What do you want to see next in space? I would like to see astronauts living on Mars. This would be a marvelous advance in space exploration. I would also like to see astronomers find a planet with life forms on it because we might be able to communicate with them.  That would be awesome!
