A True 'Centaur' Story


The pdf material below is an extract from

"Saturn, Chiron and the Centaurs" by Melanie Reinhart,

published 2011 by Starwalker Press, UK, pp. 286-291.


[This book was first published in 1996 by CPA Press under the title "To the Edge and Beyond",
predating the story of the 'Naming of Nessus' by almost a year. Without confirmation
from the IAU as to the name, I went into print in 1996 using the name of 'Nessus' for
the KBO (Kuiper Belt Object) then known only by the designation of 1993HA2.]
