Two thirds of our team are physics nerds.
What it does
Simulates a satellite moving around earth.
How we built it
Java with frame and math (trigonometry) and physics formulas.
Challenges we ran into
Errors in our math. We initially used formulas that we formatted incorrectly.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Just getting this project off the ground.
What we learned
We learned to fully develop the idea before starting our code, especially working in a team. We started our code before figuring out our implementation.
What's next for Projectile Simulator
We can add more planets and make a kerbal space program - esque project.
