I was really hoping the article would explain why they put the "1190" in the name WT1190F. But no, not even the Wikipedia article, nor the Catalina Sky Survey article, bother to explain it.
Obviously, we'll need to explain the name ourxelves

Just what I'd expect to see if I were looking through a Spaaace-Time portal.
I can write code to predict the epilogue sequence and not care about if it looks like the real code as long as the results are the same.
I can try to figure out the real code which (in its intermediate form) may or may not produce the epilogue sequence exactly.
Write your code in Haskell, and use pure functions for the actual algorithm. Then it won't matter if you take the first option, because for us in the I/O domain, i.e. the real world, we won't be able to tell.
