This model calculates Keplerian orbits. It is made by joining a model of conic sections, a model of motion in polar coordinates, and a Kepler solver. By convention, time t=0 and angle (true anomaly) θ=0 correspond to periapsis, the orbit’s closest approach to its central body. The default central body is Earth.
