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".

Romania is leading the way in an ambitious project to build an instrument to detect and monitor tiny particles suspended in the air. The new ‘lidar’– the first of its kind in Europe – is set to contribute to ESA’s satellites that focus on the atmosphere.

According to a contract signed today at ESA headquarters in Paris, the Romanian National Institute for Research and Development in Optoelectronics will head the new Multiply project to develop Europe’s first airborne multiwavelength high spectral resolution lidar. The instrument, which will take over two years to build, is designed to probe the atmosphere from an aircraft to detect and map aerosols.
