A group of 10 Romanian students led by Cristian Lazar (22 years old), proposed the name for an asteroid in memory of their teacher, Marin Bica, during the international "Name an asteroid" campaign. The proposal of the students was chosen as the winner together with other five proposals, all selected from 1500 entries. The competition was launched in late 2013 by the "Near Earth Objects" working group of the Space Generation Advisory Council (SGAC). The winners were officially announced on Saturday, 11 October 2014, so currently the asteroid (4633) 1988AJ5 is already bearing the name "MarinBica".
