29508 Bottinelli

This minor planet is named after Lucette Bottinelli (1937 - 2015) was a French radio astronomer from Meudon Observatory, who taught at Orsay University from 1962 to 2005. Observing the 21 cm line of galaxies, she helped reconcile the then-divergent values of the Hubble constant. She is a founding member of the Comité de Liaison Enseignants et Astronomes.

The symbol of this asteroid is an LB monogram over the astronomer's star-in-circle.
