11876 Doncarpenter           Discovered 1990 Mar. 2 by E. W. Elst at the European Southern Observatory.
For the past 42 years, Don Carpenter (b. 1938) has been associated with the Stanford research group devoted to passive and active whistler-mode probing of the earth's ionosphere and magnetosphere. In 1966 he discovered the plasmapause in the electron-density distribution of the magnetosphere.
