Gernot Burkhardt: Minor Planet Names with Ties to Heidelberg

Not all the planets in this excerpt from the Dictionary of Minor Planet Names database are as obviously related to Heidelberg as the Heidelberga discovered in 1892. Gernot Burkhardt explains for 169 minor planets what connects them with the city on the Neckar. He thus provides an update to the Heidelberg University Science Atlas, which was published on the occasion of the 625th anniversary of the university in 2011 and which already lists 97 names of minor planets.

The "Kalendrier la Royne" by Wilhelm von Saint-Cloud

A calendar structures time and makes it plannable. And it is a testimony to its time of origin. The Kalendrier la Royne by the Parisian astronomer William of Saint-Cloud from 1296 impressively illustrates both the state of knowledge of astronomy and computistics of its time and the shift of medieval science from a clerical culture to a lay culture.
