Is there a way of asking for someone to receive a medal or badge such as "badge for answering an extremely tough question that many other people struggled to answer?"

In this particular case I am thinking specifically of Can Eight Retrograde (seen from Earth) planets occur? but my question here applies generally.

I get what you mean; I, too, have gotten some amazing answers across Stack Exchange that made me think "Wow, where did that come from?" While you can't award someone a badge for top-notch work, you can offer a bounty on the question (assuming it's at least two days old) of anywhere from 50 to 500 reputation points, and award it to their answer. Now, that does require you to have enough reputation points to give away, and right now you only have 21, but if you keep asking good questions and writing good answers, I'm sure you'll get there in no time.
