Sci-Fi Wire reports:
Battlestar Galactica star Edward James Olmos has been honored with an asteroid named after him, according to NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory. The asteroid formerly known as 1993 EO will now officially be called 5608 Olmos in recognition of the actor's work and promotion of humanitarian causes. The name was suggested by Massachusetts astronomer Tom H. Burbine, who achieved a similar recognition for Star Trek veteran George Takei last year.
Speaking of Eddie, this stuff is great:
