Wu Chien-Shiung

Asteroid 2752, Wu Chien-Shiung, was discovered on September 20, 1965 at Purple Mountain Observatory in Nanjing (Nanking), Jiangsu, China. Wu Chien-Shiung has a period of 5 years, 96 days.

It was named for Chinese-born American physicist Chien-Shiung (C.S.) Wu (1912-1997), who worked on the Manhattan Project during World War II, one of only a few female scientists involved. In China, the family name (what we in America would call the surname or "last name") is given first, e.g., Wu Chien-Shiung.

C.S. Wu

Astrologically, Wu Chien-Shiung seems to indicate coming into one's own, accomplishment, finding something one likes.
