Dungeons and Dragons and Science!

What do asteroid 2017 BQ6 and a mollusk named Gastrocopta sharae have in common? If you answered Dungeons & Dragons you might be right!


Gastrocopta sharae is named after Shar, the goddess of darkness, caverns and secrets in Dungeons & Dragons.

And asteroid 2017 BQ6? Well, it kinda sorta looks like a die you'd use playing D&D.



Go science!
