Four years ago today we were very happy to report that we’d named and registered a star within the constellation of Draco as ‘Bod Rangzen’ (independence for Tibet). Although NASA is reluctant to acknowledge this registration, due in large part to not wishing to upset its Chinese space partners, this name will be accepted by all those who value freedom, justice and human rights.

So next time you have a chance look up into the night skies and locate Draco (although the star within that contellation is not visible to the naked eye) remember to think of it shining down the hope that freedom will return for the Tibetan people.
