Message Detail:
The mytological name of Eris was assigned to 2003 UB313 because its discovery created a tense debat about "planet" definition.

The discovery of 1992 QB1 proved the existence of Kuiper Belt and brought on the disagreement of Pluto as a planet by some astronomers. Almost ten years later, the discovery of 2003 UB313 (Eris) made crucial the debat, and less than a month after the IAU resolution about planet definition, they decided to give Eris name to 2003 UB313 because of the tense debat than brought on its discovery.

That is a meaningful sincronic event recognized by astronomers.
