6639 Marchis           Discovered 1989 Sept. 25 by H. Debehogne at La Silla.
Franck Marchis (b. 1973) exploited the high-resolution capabilities offered by adaptive optics from ground-based telescopes to survey hundreds of main-belt minor planets and Trojans. In 2004 he led the team that discovered (87) Sylvia II (Remus), the only case where a main-belt object is known to have a second satellite.
