Cool!

I realize that there are comparatively few discoveries named after things from Tolkien's books, and that most of these are too minor to be cared about by the majority of the population. But it just makes me so happy that somewhere out there sits a nerd who makes a life-not-changing discovery and decides, "Heck, let's name it after Tolkien!". Way to go!
