8464 Polishook           Discovered 1981 Mar. 2 by S. J. Bus at Siding Spring in the course of the U.K. Schmidt-Caltech Asteroid Survey.
David L. Polishook (b. 1976) is a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. His 2010 Ph.D. thesis at Tel Aviv University explored minor-planet spin evolution and his ongoing investigations include spectral studies of minor-planet binaries and separated pairs.
