NASA Just Named A Constellation Of Stars After Godzilla

From NASA a statement read: "Godzilla ranks as one of cinema's most famous monsters and is among the most recognizable symbols of Japanese popular culture.

"In the original 1954 movie, nuclear weapons tests disturb the creature's deep ocean habitat, and it emerges from the sea to wreak havoc in Japan,

"Godzilla's trademark weapon is its 'heat ray', a fiery jet. This bears at least a passing resemblance to gamma-ray jets associated with black holes and neutron stars."

According to the organization, Godzilla was given this gamma-ray constellation because its stars often emit gamma-ray bursts similar to the atomic breath the kaiju wields.
