32944 Gussalli           Discovered 1995 Nov. 19 by P. Sicoli and F. Manca at Sormano.
Luigi Gussalli (1855-1950) was a mechanical engineer and designer of an experimental "double reaction" engine in 1920. He spent a considerable part of his life in studying and developing space-vehicle propulsion application devices to travel to the moon.
