Planet Capablanca

Post by Mats Winther » Mon Apr 06, 2015 4:54 am

You have probably heard that Vishy Anand has now a planetoid named after himself: ... vishyanand

You can name planets as well as craters on Mars here:

For a small sum, I have named some craters on Mars myself. Actually, I named a crater after myself, too (just a small one). Naming planets is more important, so it occurs by nomination and voting. So we chess players should really nominate "Capablanca" or whomever and vote for that name. Now that Anand has a planet named after himself, I'm sure that Kasparov wants one, too.
