For accurate long-term ephemerides, please instead use our Horizons system.This orbit viewer was implemented using two-body methods, and hence should not be used for determining accurate long-term trajectories (over several years or decades) or planetary encounter circumstances.

10090 Sikorsky           Discovered 1990 Oct. 13 by L. G. Karachkina and G. R. Kastel' at the Crimean Astrophysical Observatory.
Born in Russia, aircraft designer Igor' Ivanovich Sikorsky (1889-1972) built and flew the first multimotored airplanes. In 1919 he emigrated to the U.S. and created some 15 different types of aircraft. His helicopters were the first to fly across the Atlantic and Pacific oceans.
