  1. Old one. The Shoemaker-Levy comet. The pictures are of the Shoemaker couple and Levy.

  2. Shoemaker-Levy 9. The first 2 visuals are the Shoemakers and the third is David Levy.

  3. The Shoemaker-Levy Comet – Eugene and his wife Caroline Shoemaker + David Levy (third photo)

  4. By Jupiter, these are the Shoemakers and David Levy. The comet named after them violated Jupiter’s atmosphere and and almost hit the G spot.

    G = Great Red!

  5. I can spot Chandrashekar there, who has a space observatory named after him so I guess “NASA great observatories”

  6. Carolyn and Eugene Shoemaker and David Levy, after whom comet Shoemaker-Levy 9 was named.

  7. These are the scientists Fritz Strassmann, Leisa Meitner and Otto Hahn. Nuclear Fission was named afrer them although only Hahn got the nobel prize for it.

  8. Shoemaker-Levy 9 the comet which hit Jupiter, named after Eugene and Carolyn Shoemaker (A,B) and David Levy (C).
