Edward L. G. Bowell
Bowell has been instrumental in the establishment of the Lowell Observatory Near-Earth -Object Search, a search for near-Earth objects.
The trigger for this scientific work were his own findings, which he could collect on near-Earth asteroids. He could discover a large number of asteroids, including the so-called Trojan asteroids ( 2357 ) Phereclos, ( 2759 ) Idomeneus, ( 2797 ) Teucer, ( 2920 ) Automedon, ( 3564 ) Talthybius, ( 4057 ) Demophon and ( 4489 ) 1988 AK.
In addition, he discovered the periodic comet 140P/Bowell-Skiff and the non-periodic comet C/1980 E1 ( Bowell ).
