Blurb/Shorttext:
3147 Samantha is a main belt asteroid, discovered by Lyudmila Ivanovna Chernykh on December 16, 1976. She named her discovery in memory of the young American peace activist Samantha Smith. The Official Certificate was presented to her mother Jane Smith on February 28, 1987. Asteroids (from Greek ἀστήρ 'star' and εἶδος 'like, in form') are a class of Small Solar System Bodies in orbit around the Sun. They have also been called planetoids, especially the larger ones. These terms have historically been applied to any astronomical object orbiting the Sun that did not show the disk of a planet and was not observed to have the characteristics of an active comet, but as small objects in the outer Solar System were discovered, their volatile-based surfaces were found to more closely resemble comets, and so were often distinguished from traditional asteroids.
