Doctor Who thing of the day: the asteroid named TARDIS


Main-belt Asteroid 3325 — discovered in 1984 by astronomer Brian A. Skiff at the Lowell Observatory in Flagstaff, Arizona — is designated “TARDIS.” After you-know-what.
More on the body’s technical details at Jet Propulsion Laboratory. It made a close approach to Earth in April 2012.

(That is not a photo of Asteroid 3325, alas. As far as I can determine, we don’t have a photo of it.)

Someday, I have no doubt, there will be a real planet named Gallifrey…

(If you stumble across a cool Doctor Who thing, feel free to email me with a link.)

easter eggs
  • if we don’t have a photo of the asteroid, it’s because it’s probably disguised as something else! 

  • or it’s a low level perception filter. Or we’re thick.

    Looks like a potato…. Must be the TARDIS.
