7307 Takei Asteroid Blurb

According to reports here yesterday, George Takei had an asteroid named after him. More from yesterday’s Associated Press coverage:

A piece of outer space named for George Takei is in kind of a rough neighborhood for somebody who steers a starship: an asteroid belt. “I am now a heavenly body,” Takei, 70, said Tuesday, laughing. “I found out about it yesterday. … I was blown away. It came out of the clear, blue sky — just like an asteroid.”
