NASA announced plans to rename some space objects, whose names are considered offensive.

In particular, the “Eskimo nebula” decided to call “catalogue” NGC 2392, since “eskimo”, according to NATO, is a colonial term, reports REN TV.

NGC 4567 and NGC 4568 decided to stop calling “galaxies Siamese twins”, since historically the Thai Kingdom that existed on the territory of contemporary Thailand.

Recall, the American company Dreyer's said that they would refrain from “disparaging” to native peoples of the North the name Eskimo Pie ice cream. The company said that the company intends “to become part of the solution to the issue of racial equality.”

The Danish company Is Hansens, which produces ice cream, has also announced its intention to abandon the word “eskimo”,.
