aperi


Aperi app. APOapsis, PERIapsis. This app shows a satellite in orbit around a planet. Change the orbit by kicking the satellite. You can do some in silico experiments, e.g. figuring out what happens if you kick a satellite parallel to its velocity while in circular orbit (does it speed up?) or see what happens if you kick it away from the planet...

Use the menu to change the kick strength, see orbital parameters or reset to initial parameters if you loose the satellite after too many kicks :).
