Karl Wilhelm Reinmuth
Reinmuth discovered two short-period comets, namely 30P/Reinmuth and 44P/Reinmuth and 395 asteroids (see list of asteroids ), including Apollo, the namesake of a group of asteroids (Apollo - type) whose orbits may cross Earth's path. Reinmuth discoveries of asteroids account for the period from 1914 until 1957.
Particularly spectacular was his discovery of the asteroid ( 69230 ) Hermes in 1937, which was recovered by the LONEOS program until 2003. Calculations whose orbit presented at the German astronomer Friedrich Gondo Laces.
