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.

Named in memory of Richard P. Feynman (1918-1988), outstanding theoretical physicist, 1965 Nobel prizewinner for physics, known for his works on liquid helium, quantum electrodynamics, elementary-particle physics and solid-state physics. Feynman was also an outstanding lecturer, and his three-volume introductory university course, The Feynman lectures on physics, has been an inspiration and source of delight for generations of physicists and other scientists all over the world. His adventures, manner of thinking and curious character are recorded in Surely you're joking, Mr. Feynman and What do you care what other people think?
