Searching database of minor planet names
The catalog of asteroids discovered at Klet can be searched in two ways. In the first one, pick a starting letter of asteroid's name from the listed alphabet. In the second way, start writing an expression to search (diacritics is allowed), and after at least three letters are typed, the results are automatically listed. The search can also be performed only on asteroid names, catalogue numbers, date of discovery or names of the discoverers.

A partial anagram of the Czech word for microaccelerometer, MACEK was designed under the leadership of the Astronomical Institute of the Czech Academy of Sciences to measure extremely low levels of acceleration on board artificial satellites. Its performance has been proven aboard Space Shuttle STS-79.
