293878 Tapping           Discovered 2007 Sept. 9 by D. D. Balam at Mauna Kea.
Kenneth Tapping (b. 1945), a solar physicist at the NRC-Dominion Radio Astrophysical Observatory, Penticton, B.C., is responsible for Canada's 10.7-cm flux measurements (continuous since 1946) that are critical to understanding solar variability and climate.
