PeeZed gets an asteroid named after him!

Toutatis asteroid from JPLEvery science nerd hopes to get something named after them, with the mostly likely candidates being small invertebrates or small celestial bodies as there are lots of both still without names.

As further proof of how cool PeeZed is, he just got an asteroid named after him! The little rock formally known as 153298 is now “paulmyers”, which is certainly easier to remember for the test. Visit MPR for an interview.

(The asteroid in the photo isn’t “paulmyers”; it’s a photo of the Toutatis asteroid from JPL.)

3.1415927 reasons to tune in to KUMM (on- or off-line)

Fri 4-6pm at KUMM (Spring 2008)

  • They have a fancy new redesigned web site.
  • You can check out cool photos like the one above in their new gallery.
  • They have the schedule on-line so you know who you’re listening to!
  • They’re way cooler than the lame radio station that those other people are listening to.
  • You know you want to listen to a station where the DJs have that many CDs to play with.
  • We’re in Britain, so you’ll almost guaranteed not to hear our voices for several months. (It’s not 100%, though, because the promo spots that we’ve done over the years have a habit of turning up now and then.)
  • Cory Funk (a mighty and wondrous KUMM alum) is back on the air and has a killer 1 hour show at 5pm (Central time) on KUST. (Yeah, I realize that I’m plugging another station here, but Cory wouldn’t be that amazing without all his KUMM experience, now would he?)

I enjoy listening at what are very odd hours back in Minnesota and then IM’ing requests. It really messes with their heads to have profs listening at 3am…
