Orbit Xplorer is an easy-to-use orbit simulator suitable for high school, college and university
students and teachers, or anyone with an interest in physics and astronomy. For the first time you
can do "lab exercises" in gravitational physics! If you are solving problems involving orbits of
satellites, planets or stars it will be exciting to simulate the problem in Orbit Xplorer and compare
its numerical output with your own solutions.
Orbit Xplorer comes with more than 40 premade simulations which you may modify as you like.
Each simulation includes one or more suggested activities of varying difficulty. You may also
construct and save your own simulation.
### Features

•
Calculate and plot the orbits of up to 10 gravitationally interacting bodies.
•
Easily create, run, save and print your own orbit simulation.
•
View time, distance, velocity, acceleration and energy.
•
View velocity and acceleration vectors.
•
View field and equipotential lines.
•
View graphs of distance, velocity, acceleration and energy as a function of time.
•
View a simulation from two different viewpoints simultaneously.
•
View the orbits in 3D or 2D.
•
Uses actual pictures of planets and moons.
