Hello. As part of my ongoing effort to make Orbital Mechanics easier, I am writing a series of pages on my site about the mathematics of going through space. Most of these pertain to my calculators.

Orbital Mechanics Basics

A basic intro to the basic concepts of Orbital Mechanics.

Orbital Calculator #1: Flying by the seat of your pants.

A run down of how my first calculator, one to derive the orbit of a spacecraft given constants, works.

Orbital Calculator #2: Planning ahead.

A run down of how my second calculator, one to plan the the maneuvers of a spacecraft prior to launch, works.
