Just Out of Curiosity

What was the last VAM the Mr. VanAllen put a discovery lable on since new discoveries are now done by VAM experts? Do we know?

Looks like it was 79-S VAM 128 in early November according to my records, but there may have been others after that last year.

I wouldn't slight Leroy since I would consider him a very substantial VAM expert. After all, without Leroy we wouldn't be where we are with VAMs.

My 1880-P 'New VAM-86' is on a November 28, 2021 letter.

It was not intended to slight Mr. Van Allen at all. I consider Mr. Van Allen the Master of VAM experts but realize he has retired from attributing new discoveries.
