Pirt: Piergiorgio Cusinato is an antique dealer who lives at Cortina d´Ampezzo. Since that year his music has evolved into what he terms a "tintinnabular" style, which is much influenced by medieval plainsong and organum.

Scohlogoga: Ema Moravcová (b. 1999) is the discoverer's daughter. He established the West of London Astronomical Society in 1967. His main fields of interest are the physics of the earth's atmosphere, astronomy of minor bodies and space science. Head of the construction team, he played an important role in the development of adaptive optics devices for the MPIA and UKIRT telescopes.

Seassu: Born at Soja-Akahama in Okayama Prefecture, Sessyu (1420-1508) is called the "saint of painting". He figured the 0.4-m photographic doublet with which Max Wolf discovered many minor planets.

Zhank: Named in honor of Zhang Guoxi, Chinese industrialist, for his contributions to social welfare and public education.

Chucang: Glenn MacPherson (b. 1950), curator at the Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History, has studied chondrules and Ca-Al-rich inclusions to investigate the nebular processes that formed chondritic meteorites. It was founded in 1952 and a large number of researchers in the field of optoelectronics have been trained there. From 1963 to 1988 he held the chair of Semitic and Arabic studies at the Freie Universität in Berlin.
