Modeling Satellite to Planet Fly-by
Joshua M Lynch
The purpose of this project will be to simulate a satellite performing a planetary fly-by. The problem will be modeled in python using a two body simulation. Computation will be performed using numerical methods. Expected result is for satellite total energy to be higher, or decreased depending on approach (leading edge vs trailing edge fly-by). Resulting velocity and energy changes will be compared to the analytical solution.
