Originally synchronized as & # 39; 81948 (2000 OM69) & # 39 ;, the new official name reflects the full name Brian Peter George St John the Baptiste de la Salle Eno of the 71-year-old musician.

However, the rock will simply be named Eno – in honor of the man whose 1983 Apollo Atmospheres and Soundtracks album was used for Al Reinert & # 39; s documentary 1989 For All Mankind on the Apollo 11 space mission.

The decision came within the framework of a collaboration between the Southwest Research Institute astronomer, Marc Buie, in collaboration with the International Astronomical Union and the Planet Center minor.

Stephen Hawking Science Medal

The Stephen Hawking Science Medal is a prestigious prize that recognizes the merit of popular science at the international level.

The design of the medal made use of a portrait of professor Hawking by cosmonaut Alexei Leonov, the first man to take a space walk and member of the Starmus Advisory Board since the first edition.

The other side combines the image of Alexei Leonov of the first space walk and the iconic guitar – the Red Special – to demonstrate music, another important part of the Starmus festival.

Winners take an 18 K yellow gold OMEGA Speedmaster Moonwatch Professional Chronograph 42 mm with the words & # 39; WINNER OF THE STEPHEN HAWKING MEDAL FOR SCIENCE COMMUNICATION & # 39; on the back of the case. It also has a laser-engraved medallion that follows the design of the medal.

Winners of the 2019 A Giant Leap at Starmus V event were SpaceX founder Elon Musk, musician Brian Eno and the Apollo 11 movie.

In 2017, The Big Bang Theory TV show, astrophysicist Neil Degrasse Tyson and musician Jean Michel Jarre took home prizes of life and the universe-themed Starmus IV event.

The Starmus III Beyond The Horizon: a tribute to the Stephen Hawking event in 2016, which won the soundtrack composer Hans Zimmer from the film. The same year the documentary film Particle Fever was recognized, plus author, broadcaster and physicist, Jim Alkhalili, was honored.
