18101 Coustenis           Discovered 2000 June 5 by the Lowell Observatory Near-Earth Object Search at the Anderson Mesa Station.
Athena Coustenis (b. 1961), of the Laboratoire d´Etudes Spatiales et d´Instrumentation en Astrophysique at Paris Observatory, has studied Saturn VI (Titan) telescopically by analyzing Voyager spacecraft data. She is co-investigator of three Cassini/Huygens mission instruments.
