Proposed name: Geb

Justification for the name: "Geb is the Father of the Egyptian God Osiris. The asteroid was also the reason the spacecraft Osiris was built. Geb was also the god of crops and I have read that scientists think that the asteroid has organic chemicals."

What do you want to see next in space? "The next thing I would like to see in space exploration is an astronaut land on Mars to see if there is a possibility that humans could live on the planet in case there is a problem with the Earth in hundreds or thousands of years to come."
