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...

I am not familiar with the standards on comet designations. Sorry!


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...

COMMUNITY ADDON - Double/Multiple Asteroids fixes for SE

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.

I think I don't understand the idea behind this very well. Socialism it's not exactly about private property or ownership, It's about the private property of the so called means of production. Let me explain this a little since it's a very common misconception that I myself had before (exacerbated ...

I would love to see these models in SE, but I don't have the modding skills to do it

It is a shame I do not know how to do this myself. Do you know anyone here who could help with this?

The attacks are more directly based on ideology.  For the religious inspiration to that ideology, we must ask: how political is the religion?  I think you're wrong if you assume all religions to be equally political.  I do think you'll find people with ambitions to change society in any religion, b...

It's been added in the last update :) . Whenever I update Asteroid-bin.sc I also update the list of asteroids contained in first post. Since 1998 WW31 doesn't appear to have a designation number yet, it's listed in "Others" category in that post.

Thanks, I will go and see the update.
