The provisional designation of this object is singularly appropriate to honor Douglas Adams (1952-2001), author of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. In their cosmic travels following the earth's destruction, his two protagonists ascertained that the answer to Life, the Universe and Everything was the number 42.

Discovered on 19-2-2001 in Socorro by LINEAR
