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.

23776 Gosset           Discovered 1998 Aug. 17 by P. G. Comba at Prescott.
William Sealy Gosset (1876-1937) studied mathematics and chemistry at Oxford. His most important contribution, published under the pseudonym "Student", was the derivation of a statistic, known as "t", that plays a central role in tests of hypotheses based on the analysis of small samples.
