6312 Robheinlein           Discovered 1990 Sept. 14 by H. E. Holt at Palomar.
Missouri-born Robert A. Heinlein (1907-1988) was one of the most influential authors of science fiction. His By His Bootstraps (1941) is considered to be one of the best science-fiction stories ever published, exploring some of the inherent paradoxes that would be caused by time travel. The name was suggested by J. Meeus.
