Tesla would make a great name for something, especially anything electrical like a solar array.
Actually, once the Orion class ships start flying that will replace the shuttle, I am curious to see what names will be chosen. Given the Star Trek influence that helped the test orbiter get the name Enterprise, I hope we can draw on sci-fi again. I'd love to see a new manned ships named after battlestars.
Galactica, Pegasus, Atlantia, Acropolis, Triton, Pacifica, Solaria, Prometheus, Valkyrie, Erasmus, Night Flight, Vortex, Mercury, Cerberus, and Rycon are all known battlestar names.
