(3325) TARDIS

Reference work entry

1984 JZ. Discovered 1984 May 3 by B. A. Skiff at Anderson Mesa.

The acronym TARDIS stands for Time And Relative Dimensions In Space and derives from the long-running science-fiction television program ‘Dr. Who’. It is the name of the vehicle The Doctor uses for travel through space-time. Whimsically, it has the outward appearance of a British police telephone box but is quite spacious inside. (M 16041)
