The Great Starship, Rama

My tribute to a Sci-Fi legend.

“It was at this point that the computers began flashing their ‘We have something interesting’ sign, and, for the first time, 31/439 came to the attention of human beings. There was a brief flurry of excitement at SPACEGUARD Headquarters, and the interstellar vagabond was quickly dignified with a name instead of a mere number. Long ago, the astronomers had exhausted Greek and Roman mythology; now they were working through the Hindu pantheon. And so 31/439 was christened Rama.” (Arthur C. Clarke – Rendezvous with Rama)
