On March 28, 1802 the number of known asteroids doubled—from one to two—when Heinrich Wilhelm Olbers, a physician and astronomer living near Bremen, Germany, discovered Pallas, a rocky body about 512 km (318 mi) in diameter, orbiting between Mars and Jupiter. Five years and one day later (March 29th, 1807), Olbers again doubled the known asteroids, discovering the fourth, dwarf planet Vesta, which he allowed Carl Friedrich Gauss to name.
