Today the DMV (german mathematician comunity) awards their media prizes to journalists for special archivements in communicating mathematics in the public. Besides the media prize (4000 euros) for George Szpiro (Jerusalem) and the journalists prize (1000 euros) for Ulf von Rauchhaupt (Frankfurt) a very special honor is given to Hans Magnus Enzensberger: The implicit surface given by the above equation was named after him.
