17241 Wooden           Discovered 2000 Mar. 11 by the Lowell Observatory Near-Earth Object Search at the Anderson Mesa Station.
Diane H. Wooden (b. 1958), of NASA Ames Research Center, has helped pioneer the use of thermal infrared spectroscopy to characterize the mineralogical composition of dust. This has resulted in the discovery of both crystalline and amorphous silicate features in comets.
