Kraus, he founded the first German fashion magazine, Journal des Luxus und der Moden. The 0.6-m telescope with which this minor planet was discovered is named in his honor.

Je: Named in memory of Maximilian Hell (1720-1792), famous for his determination of the solar parallax from his observations of the transit of Venus in 1769. After a year in Geneva, he began work in Strasbourg in 1974, strengthening the research there in astrophysics and attempting to make the stellar data center the largest such center in the world. Blythe Andra Lowe, a professional geologist, is the wife of the discoverer.

Ceennanck: American scientist Claude Elwood Shannon (1916-2001) became the father of information science and a cofounder of cybernetics through his numerous fundamental contributions, including the epoch-making paper A Mathematical Theory of Communication (1948). He composed many choral songs, motets and madrigals. She attends the Central Middle School, Eden Prairie, Minnesota.

Huyle: Fred Hoyle (b. 1915) is the leading proponent of steady-state cosmology. Born in Germany, he was educated in Argentina and served as head of the astro- physics department at La Plata from 1957 to 1973. Its Latin name was inspired by classical female names from the pioneer days of the searching for minor planets in the nineteenth century.

Jirna: Named in honor of Lumí r Jindra (b. 1936), an old friend of the discoverer, for his contribution to Czech pharmacology. In order to elucidate the origin of meteroites he developed a Monte Carlo method for studying the effects of close planetary encounters on the orbital evolution of small planet-crossing bodies. The coil was applied for energizing discharge tubes, notably for generating x-rays.

Rhuttengang: Rainer Kling (b. 1952) is a German amateur astronomer who initiated, together with Erwin Schwab, the astrometric program at the Taunus Observatory. Some of the species yield dyes. Since then his observations have helped characterize the physical and dynamical properties of the inner planets, the Galilean satellites, Saturn's rings, and several asteroids and comets. Cara is a student at the St. Andrew's Priory, Honolulu, Hawaii.

Ajnaolpelpe: Leonhard Hess Stejneger (1851-1943) was a Norwegian-born American ornithologist and author of more than 400 scientific publications on birds, reptiles and seals. Its precious Carrara marble is known worldwide. When Paris was still working for Agelaos as a shepherd, he had to give the 'judgment of Paris'.

Irniphild: Izhdubar was an ancient Chaldean sun-god. Born in Germany, he was educated in Argentina and served as head of the astro- physics department at La Plata from 1957 to 1973. Born in Sommerfeld near Leipzig, Arnold was a farmer by profession. She enthusiastically works for international cooperation in studying the solar system. Inti was at the head of the state cult. He attends the Martin Luther King, Jr. Magnet School, Nashville, Tennessee, U.S.A.

Plemhel: Petrus Plancius (Pieter Platevoet, 1552-1622) was a Dutch theologian, astronomer, navigator and appointed cartographer to the new Dutch East India Company. ), son of Sesostris III. Philippe Robutel (b. 1964) works at the Institut de Mécanique Céleste in Paris on the stability of the three-body problem, especially on the existence of quasiperiodic motions for the application of KAM theory.

Cenk: Named in honor of the Irkutsk Pedagogical Institute. In 1991 she designed and managed the construction of the observatory. Uwe Fink (b. 1939), at the Lunar and Planetary Laboratory, has made major contributions in the fields of planetary atmospheres, the surface composition of small bodies, reflection spectra, absorption coefficients of ices and cometary coma production rates.

Aduarrarr: Named in honor of Johan S. V. Lagerros (b. 1968) to celebrate the completion of his Ph.D. Currently he is the director of the Belgian Chamber Philharmonic Orchestra, and his performance of Mendelssohn's Italian Symphony in Oct. The tribe is mentioned in Julius Caesar's Gallic Wars.

Ganina: Named in honor of John B. Adams, geologist at the University of Washington, Seattle. Benjamin West. Well known for her novels, essays and short stories, she also did translational work. Since graduating from the Mathematical Department of Rostov University she gas worked as dean of the faculty of distance learning at the Southern Regional School of Innovative Business.

Sylvallogaunn: Named in memory of the German geologist Johann Gottlob Lehmann (1719-1767), who made important contributions to stratigraphy, the study of order and sequence in bedded sedimentary rocks. It was mentioned in the twelfth century as an important seigniory, part of the mighty abbey of Vorst. An amateur astronomer since childhood, she has a special passion for minor planets.
