In a truly astonishing start to 2015, Asteroid 14061 Nagincox was named after me! I have trouble even typing that in, I am still so surprised. The discoverers of the asteroid have naming rights and they happened to hear me give an outreach presentation in Italy. I am glad they were inspired by the stories of the robotic exploration of Mars but I truly never expected it would result in this! The asteroid was discovered on Feb 13 1996 by U. Munari and M. Tombelli at Cima Ekar.
