Near Earth Asteroids (NEA/NEO) database?

Hi! Is anybody in the position (data access) to create a NEA addon to Celestia? It could be cool.

I think there are several NEA addons already. Celestia Origin already has them, though if you only want the NEA's, I think some of the addon makers here can help with that

I took this literally, and I generated most of the (non-Apohele/non-Atira) 21,743 near-earth asteroids from MPCORB.DAT (as of January 8th 2020, at 12:34 British time).
