11942 Guettard           Discovered 1993 July 12 by E. W. Elst at the European Southern Observatory.
Jean-Etienne Guettard (1715-1786) was a French geologist and mineralogist. From the evidence of fossils found in the volcanic hills of the Puy de Dôme, in south-central France, he concluded correctly that they conflicted with the time scheme of the Old Testament.
