How to plot/visualize (elliptical) orbits of celestial objects in heliocentric reference frame?
37 views (last 30 days)
I'm solving numerical problems of celestial mechanics in Fortran, the data pre-processing and post-processing is performed in Matlab instead.
My problem is to find "design of low-energy trajectories to Near Earth Objects". So it is an interplanetary transfer to small bodies (asteroids and comets) of the Solar system.
Firstly I need to plot an heliocentric reference frame, the Earth orbit and some asteroids orbit, then I want to plot the trajectory of the spacecraft.
Can you help me?
