Douglas Adams, creator of the Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy, has joined the celestials . . . he has an asteroid named after him. and not just any asteroid. This particular space rock was chosen because it carried the provisional designation 2001 DA42 . . . that is:
  • the year of his death
  • his initials
  • and, of course, the answer to the question of Life, the Universe, and Everything.
