This is a Dutch video about Aletta Jacobs.
Translated from Dutch astronomy site Alles over sterrenkunde:
Four new ‘Dutch’ asteroids
February 1, 2010
Since last Saturday, four new ‘Dutch’ asteroids are circling around in our solar system. They are named after the first Dutch female physician and champion of women’s suffrage Aletta Jacobs, the 17th-century master painter Pieter Jansz. Saenredam (well known for his realistic church interiors), the 17th-century pastor and language purist Samuel Ampzing, and the 18-19th-century physician, poet and lecturer in Natural History at Leiden University Dr Joannes le Francq van Berkhey.
The four asteroids move several hundred millions of miles from the sun in the space between the planets Mars and Jupiter.

NASA’s space probe Dawn is on its way to Vesta, scheduled to settle into orbit around the solar system’s second largest asteroid on July 16th, about a month from now. On June 1st, when Dawn was still 480,000 km (300,000 miles) away from Vesta, it captured a series of navigational images that have been put together into a short animation: here.
