Planetary Society 2013 Contest
In May 2013 the IAU officially renamed Asteroid 1999 RQ36 to Bennu, the winning entry in the Planetary Society's Name That Asteroid! contest.
It was named by Mike, a third-grade student in Greensboro NC.
Bennu is the first celestial body since Pluto to be named by a school child!
On September 8th the OSIRIS-REx mission launches to explore the asteroid, returning samples to Earth in 2023
