i do not know why i'm writing this, but thank you for the this knowledge you are spreading. i don't think i had the capacity to grasp this read, ever, but i know there must be someone out there who benefited. i' ve only been seeing LJs / blogs for art & lit uses but never this scientific things. so yeah, thanks again!

Some background in celestial mechanics is very helpful in understanding my essay on transfer orbits. With that background, you'd be able mentally to "see" what I was doing and, to an extent, to anticipate where I was going. This is the math behind spaceship piloting, and, if mankind ever gets to the point where spaceflight is commonplace, there will be job opportunities for people with this knowledge. By putting the transfer tutorial here, I'm hoping to popularize celestial mechanics and make it at least a little easier to learn than it was before.
