Sleepless in Space: Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan (Asteroids) Meet Up Again

Could you believe that it's been 18 years since Sleepless in Seattle came out? Why, it's time for a remake ... this time in space!

Once upon a time, there was an asteroid called 12818 and one named 8353.

These two asteroids, which were discovered over the space of seven years and across different hemispheres, recently made their closest approach yet to Earth in September. Nothing remarkable about that, you might imagine. But what if we told you that the names given to these astronomical wonders were — wait for it — Tomhanks and Megryan. Truth can be stranger than fiction or, in this case, the movies.
