Orbital mechanics or astrodynamics is the application of ballistics and celestial mechanics to the practical problems concerning the motion of rockets and other spacecraft.

The motion of these objects is usually calculated from Newton’s laws of motion and the law of universal gravitation.

Orbital mechanics is a core discipline within space-mission design and control.

Dream big and think beyond the world you stand within. Generations to come will need big thinkers like you.
