We submit to The International Astronomical Union and the lawmakers in congress the renaming of the Orion constellation to the "Elvis" constellation on the grounds of raising awareness of the importance and relevance of the astronomical field.
As some of the most important astronomical observations have been made by the common man (man in the biblical sense) and the name of Orion the hunter having little relevance to modern thought renaming the constellation "Elvis, The King of Rock and Roll" provides a universally known figure for everyone to rally around and celebrate.
Lastly, we the undersigned, assert that perpetuating the Elvis mythos is in good humor for everyone and heals the poor of spirit.
We, the undersigned, humbly request that The International Astronomical Union and the lawmakers in Washington rename the Constellation "Orion the Hunter" "Elvis, The King of Rock and Roll" and that this be the officially recognized name for this grouping of stars.
