By Veronique Greenwood | December 6, 2012 11:21 am

Stargazers and knowledge hounds have long been acquainted with Smithsonian’s Universe—a lush, glorious tour of the space that starts just beyond our atmosphere, edited by Martin Rees, Astronomer Royal. The hefty, glossy-paged book has now been revised and updated in a beautiful new edition.

We at Discover would like you to have a copy of your very own. We will be giving it away to the first person who answers this question correctly, in an email to editorial@discovermagazine.com.

The question:

What small Martian stones are nicknamed after a fruit?

(Bonus points: Why is the fruit moniker a misnomer?)*

Send your answer, along with your mailing address, to editorial@discovermagazine.com. We’ll send this beautiful book to the first person who gets it right.

*Good for our geeky admiration
