New planet classification

Hello, can you people give me idea how to fix the Finnish translation to up to date program. As my language is not Indoeuropean stuff, it does not have any grammatical genders it was suggested to me by  Mosfet  to make all the terms neuter, so then it would work I guess.   I am not a planet scientis...

COMMUNITY ADDON - Double/Multiple Asteroids fixes for SE

Thank you for pointing this out. By removing 2006 VW139 the two components are missing the barycenter name, though. Simply changing the name with 288P 2006 VW139 does solve the issue. By judging from Wikipedia sources, the name should be separated (288P / 2006 VW139), but I don't see the urge to ch...

(300163) 2006 VW139/288P, a main belt asteroid having cometary behavior, previously suspected as binary, has been confirmed as such by Hubble observations according to a paper published today. SE can simulate the object with assumed data from the original paper: // https://arxiv.org/pdf/1510.07629....

Nordic model in Finland is being currently destroyed by prime minister Sipilä and his party Keskusta and the Kokoomus party that is withing government with them right now. This is how I feel right now as many government owned things are being privatized right now. And many of these new privatizatio...

I have to agree with you that I despise neoliberals like the Clintons- they are the disease that caused most of the problems with their greed.  Trump is a symptom of the problem, not the cure but also not the cause.  I consider myself a progressive and a libertarian and prefer the Nordic Model. Nor...

COMMUNITY ADDON - Double/Multiple Asteroids fixes for SE

I have decided to start back from the beginning and sort through any low numbered asteroids that were missed. Here are main belt objects 2535 Hemeenlinna and 2623 Zech. Silicon , I am sorry but you did have a typo in the name of another of those 2 asteroids. The minor planet (2535) is named after a...

That is not a problem. No one can know everything. And we learn new things all the time.

Hi Silicon , welcome back.  Permian Therapsid is right, I just checked and the satellite you added is referred to the main belt asteroid 2343 Siding Spring, discovered in 1979, not yet in SE catalog but it will be added now. Comet Siding Spring you refer to it's a non-periodic comet discovered in 2...

Hi Mosfet! I don't know if you remember but I helped you with asteroids on the old forum. Here are some asteroids. The first three are main belt, the fourth is a moon of comet Siding Spring. Should comet moons be classified as comets or asteroids? Asteroid "(69406) 1995 SX48" {     Parent...

8486 when searching for them with their non number names Aegir and Pandora the parent was displayed right. Does this bug have something to do with an exoplanet AEgir and asteroid Pandora? These are correctly separate objects in SE but the search window is bugged. I can't find Aegir (Saturn) in SE 0...

8827 Also it would likely just make services more expensive, I think. It probably will. As a person who needs to visit the hospital regularly, I've noticed the increase in the costs of public healthcare already. That is the downside of badly planned healthcare reform. I hope it would not become too...

I hope the government would stop with all this privatization of public sector, but I do not think they will. Also it would likely just make services more expensive, I think.
