Post Martian Crater Named for George Pál
According to a new announcement from the USGS, a crater on Mars has been named for George Pál.

See http://beamjockey.livejournal.com/153553.html for details.

Pál produced some of the best-remembered science fiction movies, including the Heinlein-scripted Destination Moon, The Time Machine, and the film that gives him a Martian connection, War of the Worlds.

Heinlein received this honor in 1994 when a crater 88 kilometers in diameter was named for him:
