8031 Williamdana           Discovered 1992 Mar. 7 by S. Ueda and H. Kaneda at Kushiro.
NASA research pilot William Dana (b. 1930) was the eleventh pilot to fly the X-15 and made a total of 16 flights. These included a 1967 flight to 93500 meters and he received NASA astronaut wings in 2005. Dana made the 199th and final X-15 flight in 1968 and subsequently flew the M2-F3 and HL-10 lifting bodies.
