6635 Zuber           Discovered 1987 Sept. 26 by C. S. Shoemaker and E. M. Shoemaer at Palomar.
Named in honor of Maria T. Zuber, American geophysicist whose research interests have taken her into theoretical modeling of geophysical processes and the relationships between gravity, topography and tectonic features in planetary lithospheres. She has contributed to various space missions, including Mars Observer, the Clementine mission, Mars Global Surveyor and the Near Earth Asteroid Rendezvous mission.
