Proposed name: Rama

Justification for the name: "I think we should call the asteroid Rama, after a hero in Indian mythology. Although in Arthur C. Clarke's science fiction novel, Rendevous with Rama, it's an alien spacecraft mistaken for an asteroid. In dedication to the hero and the novel, Rama would be the perfect name."

What do you want to see next in space? "I would like to see a mission like Voyager 1 and 2 (Voyager 3) because we have more sophisticated technology now than in 1977."
