17033 Rusty           Discovered 1999 Mar. 22 by the Lowell Observatory Near-Earth Object Search at the Anderson Mesa Station.
Russell L. ("Rusty") Schweickart (b. 1935) piloted the Apollo 9 lunar module. He is founder and past president of the Association of Space Explorers. Schweikart is a cofounder of the B612 Foundation, which hopes to deflect a minor planet in a controlled manner. The name was suggested by C. R. Chapman.
