16952 Peteschultz           Discovered 1998 May 22 by the Lowell Observatory Near-Earth Object Search at the Anderson Mesa Station.
Peter H. Schultz (b. 1944), a geologist at Brown University, has studied cratering phenomena experimentally and in the field. He has played a major role in defining and developing the Deep Impact mission, particularly through his cratering experiments at the NASA Ames Vertical Gun Range.
