Myron Cope Is An Asteroid

File this in the “Badass Department.”

Okay, so I made that department up, but if it was real, this would be the first entry.

The International Astronomical Union has officially named an asteroid after late Steelers announcer Myron Cope. Far out (sorry)!

The asteroid orbits the sun in between Mars and Jupiter, so you or I will never see it. However, you can sleep better tonight knowing that 7835 Myroncope is flying around in space somewhere.

Myron Cope-steroid is only about 3 miles wide, making it a tiny body that will never come close enough to Earth.

Still, cool acknowledgement!
