10650 Houtman           Discovered 1960 Sept. 24 by C. J. van Houten and I. van Houten-Groeneveld on Palomar Schmidt plates taken by T. Gehrels.
Cornelis de Houtman (1565-1599) sailed south with four ships in 1595 to find a route to the East Indies. In 1597 he returned and thus proved that, for the Dutch, trading with the Orient was possible. His brother Fredrick de Houtman (1571-1627) outlined twelve new southern constellations.
