About the code name

Usually we choose a star name (and not a constellation) for our code names but this time, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we could not resist and "Corona Borealis" was the "chosen one".

Wikipedia wrote:
Corona Borealis is a small constellation in the Northern Celestial Hemisphere. It is one of the 48 constellations listed by the 2nd-century astronomer Ptolemy, and remains one of the 88 modern constellations. Its brightest stars form a semicircular arc. Its Latin name, inspired by its shape, means "northern crown". In classical mythology Corona Borealis generally represented the crown given by the god Dionysus to the Cretan princess Ariadne and set by him in the heavens. Other cultures likened the pattern to a circle of elders, an eagle's nest, a bear's den, or even a smokehole.

Here's an interesting short movie about the biggest object in the Universe related to the Corona Borealis constellation:
