  • Ryan M. Williams - American astronomer credited by the Minor Planet Center with the discovery of 34611 Nacogdoches along with professor of Stephen F. Austin State University ([5][6])
  • Donald Yeomans - American planetary scientist and astronomer. Made predictions that helped obtain the first images of the return of Halley's Comet in 1982. He worked at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory and managed NASA's Near-Earth Objects Program Office. According to a NASA biography, "He was a science team member for the Deep Impact/EPOXI mission, which deployed an impactor that was "run over" by comet Tempel 1 in 2005 and later approached comet Hartley 2 in 2010. Yeomans was also the U.S. project scientist for the Japanese-led Hayabusa mission that returned a sample from near-Earth object Itokawa in 2010, and a team chief for the Near-Earth Asteroid Rendezvous mission that orbited the asteroid Eros and landed on it in 2001. Asteroid 2956 Yeomans was named after him." He has been awarded the NASA Distinguished Service Medal, NASA highest award. Has written several books including Near-Earth Objects: Finding Them Before They Find Us, 2012; Comets, 1991; and Comet Halley - Fact and Folly, 1985. He was born on May 3, 1942, in Rochester, New York. [2] [3] [4] [5] [6]

General astronomy[edit]

  • Don't see the difference with synchrotron radiation. This paper differentiates the two as "Gyrosynchrotron radiation is the electromagnetic emission generated by mildly relativistic electrons moving in a magnetic field, while the term synchrotron radiation is used to describe the emission from ultarelativitic electrons", but most sources I found define synchrotron radiation as just relativistic. Maybe a historical shift in definition? I'm inclined to redirect but maybe an expert can chime in. Xingyzt (talk  |  contribs) 14:59, 6 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • These are generally sonification of radar and other non-acoustic signals. Some clarification may be helpful but don't think it deserves its own page. Xingyzt (talk  |  contribs) 14:38, 6 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

 Comment: Turkish Wikipedia has all of the NGC objects. tr:Kategori:NGC cisimleri --Evolutionoftheuniverse (talk) 14:50, 17 June 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I think quite a few language Wikipedias have all of them as well. Alpha Piscis Austrini (talk) 18:21, 14 April 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • Mikayel G. Melkumyan (Dr. Mikayel Melkumyan is an Armenian earthquake engineer who has dedicated himself to strengthening the buildings across Armenia and the world against devastating earthquakes. Through his research work he has created the Melkumyan Model, a hysteresis model that models the shear behavior of rigid reinforced concrete structures. He has reconstructed multiple buildings in Armenia and his technologies are being used in various countries. His work put Armenia second in the world after Japan for most seismically isolated buildings per capita. Dr. Mikayel Melkumyan is a distinguished professor and academic, with memberships in various scientific societies and associations.[71] [72] [73] [74] [75] [76] [77] [78] [79] [80]
