Website Detail Page

written by David Stern
Available Languages: English, French, Spanish
These pages explore synchronous orbits and "Lagrangian points," those points where an object will orbit the sun with the same period as the earth.  This has applications for solar monitoring spacecraft. The pages include three sections which derive the equilibrium properties of Lagrangian points. The calculations only involve algebra and trig, but are rather lengthy.
