The crater Sabine is at 1.4N/20.1E, has a diameter of 30 km and is named after Sir Edward Sabine.
The crater Stefan is at 46.0N/108.3W, has a diameter of 125 km, and is named after Josef Stefan. (Yes, this is the Stefan from the Stefan-Boltzmann law. No, Stefan was not Boltzmann's first name.)
There are also craters called D'Alembert, Einstein, Euler, Helmholtz, Hilbert, Lagrange, Maxwell, Plato, Schwarzschild - you see, we are in good company :-)
Is your name also on the moon?
Update: Here's what I love about blogging. I just got an email from Paolo sending me a link to a site where you can send your wishes to the moon with Selene
- Wish upon the moon (Deadline, Feb. 28th)
Footnote: Stefan is not only my husband, but also one of my brothers, one of my ex-boyfriends, as well as my current office mate, and several other friends, colleagues and relatives. My mother uses 'Stefan' as a synonym for the-men-in-my-daugther's-life.
