SARC is excited to host an introductory space flight workshop! We will learn about basic orbital mechanics, how to describe orbital shapes, how to describe orbital motion in different coordinate frames, and how spacecrafts maneuver themselves with thrusters in-flight. This workshop runs for 90 minutes, with small exercises for us to try coding out using Python on Jupyter Lite. No further software installations are necessary.

Prerequisite Knowledge: Basic Python, a bit of algebra and calculus, plus some appreciation of high school physics.
