MUMBAI: The King Khan of Bollywood must be feeling over the moon these days and quite literally so.
According to sources International Lunar Geographic Society, a New York based organisation, has named a lunar crater after Shah Rukh Khan. The crater is located on the moon’s Sea of Tranquillity and is the largest of the four Arago craters, positioned directly South of the main crater. Apparently, the crater was named after SRK on his 44th birthday in November last year, but it has now been approved by the International Astronomical Union following a spate of petitions from SRK fans worldwide.
Khan now joins the list of eminent personalities like C V Raman, Vikram Sarabhai, and Homi Bhabha after whom craters are named.
