Nöther (Noether)

Additional Information

In this region, near Noether, runs a system of east-northeast/ west-southwest oriented valleys, one of them touching the northern rim of Noether E, the other one running through the southern half of Noether T. See LAC 9 in the Clementine Atlas. Research Danny Caes.


  • Named for Amalie Emmy Noether (March 23, 1882 – April 14, 1935), a German-born Jewish mathematician, said by Einstein in eulogy to be "[i]n the judgment of the most competent living mathematicians, [...] the most significant creative mathematical genius thus far produced since the higher education of women began." Almost universally known as Emmy Noether, she had penetrating insights that she used to develop elegant abstractions.
  • This name, spelled Nöther (or Nöter), was in the long list of farside feature names approved by the IAU in 1970 and published in [[|Menzel, 1971]].
  • In 1973, on LTO-61B4, the DMA erroneously introduced the name Noether as a new replacement name for the satellite feature Cauchy D. Since Nöther had previously been assigned to the present farside crater, this was one of many invalid names that appear on the LTO charts.
  • Two valleys near Noether are unofficially called Vallis Noether E and Vallis Noether T by D.Caes (see also Additional Information).
