Segovia in Space!

My son Brandon, who is deeply into Math and Space pointed me to a minor planet (S type asteroid) in our solar system that was named after Classical Guitarist Andre Segovia. It was named 3822 Segovia. In 1959, the discoverer attended one of Segoviaís concerts in Japan and became inspired to play the guitar.

~ Jim Doyle (guitarist & cofounder of RGC)
