10596 Stevensimpson           Discovered 1996 Oct. 4 by D. di Cicco at Sudbury.
For two decades the graphic innovations of Steven Simpson (b. 1958), especially those involving star charts, have allowed (Sky & Telescope) readers to understand the universe better, whether they do so by locating planets in a starry sky or by visualizing the inner workings of atoms.
