6365 Nickschneider           Discovered 1981 Mar. 1 by S. J. Bus at Siding Spring in the course of the U.K. Schmidt-Caltech Asteroid Survey.
Nick Schneider (b. 1956) is an expert on Io's extended atmosphere and plasma torus. He has pioneered the use of mutual occultation events to study Io's corona, discovered evidence for sodium-bearing molecules in the jovian magnetosphere, and was co-discoverer of Ionian chlorine.
