Fechner, Gustav Theodor Fechner(noun)
German physicist who founded psychophysics; derived Fechner's law on the basis of early work by E. H. Weber (1801-1887)
Fechner is a lunar crater that lies on the far side of the Moon's southern hemisphere, attached to the western rim of the large walled plain Planck. The eastern rim of Fechner intersects the Vallis Planck, a long, wide cleft in the surface that follows a course to the north-northwest. This valley intrudes into the southeastern rim of the crater, then continues northwards from the periphery of the northeast rim. Attached to the western rim of Fechner is a small, bowl-shaped crater with a relatively high albedo. This satellite crater Fechner C is surrounded by a blanket of light-hued ejecta that spills across the southwestern half of Fechner's interior floor. The crater rim of Fechner is relatively worn and eroded, with the eastern half of the rim reshaped due to the valley and proximity to Planck. The interior floor is marked by several tiny craterlets.
