9492 Veltman           Discovered 1971 Mar. 25 by C. J. van Houten and I. van Houten-Groeneveld on Palomar Schmidt plates taken by T. Gehrels.
Martinus J. G. Veltman (b. 1931) is professor of physics at the Universities of Utrecht and Michigan. Together with his colleague G. 't Hooft he won the 1999 Nobel Prize in physics, awarded for placing particle physics theory on a firmer mathematical foundation and for elucidating the quantum structure of electroweak interactions.
