Orbit Simulator

Gramercy Tech integrated an interactive aspect into a permanent display at the American Museum of Natural History. The activation is located in the Dorothy and Lewis B. Cullman Hall of the Universe, located on the lower level of the Rose Center for Earth and Space. In this exhibit, examining the expanse of the universe, our team developed a simulation of the physics of one object orbiting another in space. Using the touchscreen, users can set the position and velocity of the orbiting body to see the path of the orbit.
