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.

13954 Born           Discovered 1990 Oct. 13 by F. Borngen and L. D. Schmadel at Tautenburg.
German physicist Max Born (1882-1970), a pioneer in modern theoretical physics, formulated a theory of the crystal lattice and created with his assistants the basis of quantum mechanics. He received the 1954 Nobel Prize for physics, together with W. Bothe. The name was proposed by the first discoverer.
