Summary

Click and drag on the screen to set the position and the initial velocity of the satellite.
Newton was the first to achieve the study of the dynamics of objects in space that we call now celestial mechanics. This animation allows one to use a single theory to explain short distance trajectories and orbital motion.

Click and drag on the screen to set the position and the initial velocity of the satellite.

Click on 'minus' or 'plus' to modify its speed during the flight.
