Description

poliastro is an open source collection of Python subroutines useful in Astrodynamics and Orbital Mechanics. It tries to provide a simple and intuitive API and handles physical quantities with units. Some of its awesome features are:

  • Orbit propagation (Keplerian orbits)
  • Conversion between position and velocity vectors and classical orbital elements
  • Hohmann and bielliptic maneuvers computation
  • Trajectory plotting
  • Initial orbit determination (Lambert problem)
  • Planetary ephemerides (SPICE kernels)

And more to come!
