8132 Vitginzburg           Discovered 1976 Dec. 18 by L. I. Chernykh at the Crimean Astrophysical Observatory.
Vitaly Lazarevich Ginzburg (b. 1916), winner of the Nobel Prize for physics in 2003, is an outstanding specialist in theoretical physics. His main achievements are in the theory of particles with spin 3\over2 and in the quantum theory of Čerenkov radiation.
