OrbitSim is an orbital mechanics simulator designed to deliver a hands-on learning experience. The app harnesses the advanced touch gesture interface of the iPad, and allows users to effortlessly define and create elliptical orbits around any planet in our solar system, plot orbit transfers, play animations, and study detailed output data. OrbitSim users have the opportunity to experiment with three modes of operation: the basic two-body orbit, orbit circularization, and Hohmann transfer. Each of these modes presents a sleek and intuitive interface highlighted by striking artwork.
OrbitSim HD is an ideal creative outlet for those fascinated with space exploration and the physics of our solar system. The app is available now in the App Store under the Education category.
