The Minor Planet Center (MPC) API is a web service through which users can access data on minor planets. The MPC database includes information on asteroids and comets such as, name, type, observational data, and orbital calculations. The MPC database is also regularly updated to incorporate new discoveries or observations.
The following is a list of sample source code snippets that matched your search term. Source code snippets are chunks of source code that were found out on the Web that you can cut and paste into your own source code. Whereas most of the sample source code we've curated for our directory is for consuming APIs, we occasionally find something interesting on the API provider side of things. If you know of some sample source code that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it.
