Laura Danly was an author who wrote the book The Cosmos A to Z, which listed the Arachnid Nebula as having a diameter of 6.5 billion kilometers.
When the starship Enterprise NX-01 completed a survey of the same nebula in 2151, they found that it actually had a diameter of eight billion kilometers. (ENT: "Fusion")
Danly was named after Laura Danly, the Curator of the Griffith Observatory.
