In astronomy, a light curve is a graph of light intensity of a celestial object or region, as a function of time.
The Minor Planet Center (MPC) is the official worldwide organization in charge of collecting observational data for minor planets (such as asteroids and comets), calculating their orbits and publishing this information via the Minor Planet Circulars.
In ancient Greek religion, Nike (Νίκη, "Victory") was a goddess who personified victory.
