Hey everyone,

We'll meet as usual in ME 245 (110 Cummington Mall, Room 245) at 8pm on

*ISDC at Toronto*
Last meeting we voted in favor going to the International Space Development
Conference at Toronto. First 5-10 minutes we'll talk about ISDC in detail.

*Orbital Mechanics*
I decided to skip Orbital Mechanics last week to give everyone a quick
conceptual overview on various Propulsion Systems. This time we'll start
with Orbital Mechanics and focus on the following topics.
- Gravitation
- Equations of Motion
- Orbits: Circular, Elliptical
- Trajectories: Parabolic, Hyperbolic

Also here is a link to the presentation from previous meeting.
When we have time in future, we might tackle propulsion mathematically.
