Inside the Godzilla constellation are several possible blazars, a starburst galaxy, a gamma-ray pulsar, and an unknown object.

The constellation is among the 22 newly created constellations of such stars. His neighbors include other pop-culture icons like the Starship Enterprise, the TARDIS, the Hulk, and Schrödinger's Cat constellations.

It helps that connecting the dots between the gamma ray signatures that Fermi picks up actually draws an appropriately constellation-blocky picture of the items they're named for.

An global research group using the Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope, including NASA, has named a constellation of gamma ray-emitting stars Godzilla, according to movie distributor Toho Co.

And, unlike the original 88, these gamma constellations are, in NASA's own phrasing, "unofficial", meaning they aren't (yet) accepted by the global astrophysics community as anything more than a fun way to get people thinking - and talking - about space. Fermi was first launched into space on June 11, 2008.
