The International Astronomical Union has named an asteroid after Mister Rogers, in part for his “helping the [Carnegie] Science Center develop a planetarium show – ‘The Sky Above Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood’ – that plays at about 15 planetaria across the country.” I’m still sad that he’s gone but am very happy to hear that his legacy is being preserved in this way …
