Biography of Rudolph Minkowski
Rudolph Minkowski (born Rudolf Leo Bernhard Minkowski) (May 28, 1895, Strasbourg, France – January 4, 1976) was a German-American astronomer. His father was the physiologist Oskar Minkowski. His uncle was Hermann Minkowski.
Rudolph studied supernovae and, together with Walter Baade, divided them into two classes (Type I and Type II) based on their spectral characteristics. He and Baade also found optical counterparts to various radio sources.
He headed the Palomar Observatory Sky Survey, a photographic atlas of the entire northern sky (and down to declination -22°) up to magnitude 22.
He co-discovered the Apollo asteroid 1620 Geographos, and also discovered Planetary Nebula M2-9.
He won the Bruce Medal in 1961. The crater Minkowski on the Moon is named after him and his uncle.
