6141 Durda           Discovered 1992 Dec. 26 by Spacewatch at Kitt Peak.
Named in honor of Daniel D. Durda, who has studied the generation and evolution of dust from and the size distribution of minor planets. As a member of the Galileo imaging team, he has carried out fragmentation studies of minor planets and a detailed analysis of the formation of their satellites---in particular, of (243) Ida's moon Dactyl. An avid pilot, he is also a noted astronomical artist whose paintings are inspired by his scientific work.
