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.

9885 Linux           Discovered 1994 Oct. 12 by Spacewatch at Kitt Peak.
The Linux operating system was created by Linus Torvalds in 1991. The source code for Linux was placed on the Internet. A massive public collaboration resulted in a robust, feature-rich operating system that has been used by several minor-planet surveys for data collection and analysis.
