    Purpose of use
    Check my homework answers
    [2]  2020/01/03 23:18   Male / Under 20 years old / High-school/ University/ Grad student / Useful /
    Purpose of use
    Used to calculate how efficient a beam
    powered propulsion mechanism would be with getting a craft out of orbit (trying to prove that a regular burn is easier and more reliable)
    Comment/Request
    Easy to use and not a bunch of headache
    inducing equations 😆

    Purpose of use
    trying to figure out my homework... my teacher isnt very good :P
    [4]  2019/12/06 00:40   Male / Under 20 years old / Others / Very /
    Purpose of use
    To calculate the orbit of the new proposed gateway vessel pre-lunar-burn
    [5]  2019/11/29 17:33   Male / 20 years old level / An engineer / Useful /
    Purpose of use
    Doing some fun calculations for a potential Starlink-Orbital Ring join
    [6]  2019/11/19 21:54   Male / 20 years old level / High-school/ University/ Grad student / Useful /
    Purpose of use
    Determining the orbital period of a skyhook as in the recent Kurzgesagt video. To eventually find its G force
    [7]  2019/10/21 10:40   Male / 50 years old level / An engineer / Very /
    Purpose of use
    verify that orbital velocity increases with a decrease in altitude. a readit post suggested hanging around in aero-breaking orbit for a few days as a way to decrease re-entry heating.

    Purpose of use
    Determining orbital period of a theoretical satellite
    [9]  2019/10/19 22:10   Male / 60 years old level or over / A retired person / Very /
    Purpose of use
    Musings on the operation of a space elevator
    [10]  2019/10/17 22:45   Male / 20 years old level / High-school/ University/ Grad student / Very /
    Purpose of use
    Designing a method of satellite reentry from a sun-synchronous orbit.
