[Nov 12] Nadia Comaneci receive Birthday Star Present on 45 Anniversary

   New York / Nadia's name is now recorded on the Sky, too: (the brightest) star from Hercules Constellation (known as the Champions constellation, also) was named after Nadia's name, early morning today.
The Star Registration Certificate

    We (seriously) doubt there is any person on Earth which don't know or agree that Nadia Comaneci is not a Star already; we liked to have it recorded for generations to come, on Earth or (even) from outer Space, so we did it.

   www.romanian-gymnastics. com, the most popular ( No.1, according to Google) website dedicated to Romanian gymnastics, have had the initiative (one more time, see Perfect Ten Broadcast into Space) and asked & paid for the registration of a luxury framed package through one of the oldest services, who made over 1,000,000 Stars registrations.

   We did this mostly on behalf of (Romanian) gymnastics fans around the World, some of them -more than 10,000,000 to this date- which have had visited our website.

   This is a unique Gift for "those  which have everything"; it's a novelty gift, used past years by many celebrities (see above list); we wanted to have something recorded today, for Nadia's Birthday.
   On a (more) official note, has asked also the International Astronomical Union to have a celestial object named after Nadia Comaneci; this process can take months or years and depend on various factors; in the meantime, we used the most popular service in this field. A copy of the Certificate will be displayed into the Sport Museum.
   Happy Birthday, Nadia!

[Nov 29] Nadia Comaneci heard about Birthday gift from Net
  Nadia Comaneci was asked yesterday by the Romanian TV crews about her
special Birthday Present from Romanian gymnastics Fans: naming a Star after her name. This is the news aired last evening by Realitatea TV:
Did she know in advance about it?

No, it was a surprise, she said. [Our note: what a st...range question, never heard before about somebody being advised in advance about a Birthday present]
How did she heard about it?
From the Net.
What's her opinion about this? It was a cute ("dragut") thing.

     More about Naming a Star...

     Celebrities like Martin Short, Stephanie Powers and Brooke Shields have Stars named after them.. Actress, Nicole Kidman named a star "Forever Tom" as a Christmas gift for husband, Tom Cruise. Frank Sinatra, Elizabeth Taylor, Whitney Houston and Oprah Winfrey all have stars named after them. The Tonight Show staff named a star for Johnny Carson to celebrate his retirement.
   People recognized a star certificate prominently displayed on the "bar" wall during the farewell episode of Cheers.
  ``It's the supreme form of ego'' said Joe Boskin, professor of social history at Boston University.
   "And in America, it's crucial. Immigrants came here and reinvented themselves. Their names conveyed power and identity in a new place. We are a wealthy nation, and in the history of mankind the wealthy people want to leave a legacy. That means their name. Anywhere they can.
  It's so nice to have a Star named after you and that is virtually guaranteed to last a good 5 billion years more than its namesake!"

  The Elvis star shines down from the Cepheus constellation and more than 10 Princess Dianas now dot the sky from Orion to Andromeda.
  Stars named for Billy Ray Cyrus, Dolly Parton, Sammy Davis Jr., members of the Space Shuttle Challenger crew, and the ``Star Trek'' crew twinkle in the night sky. Actor Billy Baldwin even named a star after John F. Kennedy Jr. when he died, according to a Star Registry.
