Asteroid Slessor 4793

In 1988 a man discovered an unnamed asteroid in space. For 37 years it remained there, labelled only as 4793.

This year, 2015, the centenary of the death of Mary Slessor, the asteroid has officially been named ‘Slessor 4793′ after a petition was established by a Belgian based twinning charity.
