How many of  you know about it ?




Two asteroids Väisälä discovered were named 1421 Esperanto and 1462 Zamenhof. The numbers tell you that respecively they were asteroid numbers 1,421 and 1,462 to be discovered. Esperanto is a constructed language developed by Ludwig Zamenhof. Väisälä spoke Esperanto and was one of its ardent advocates.
