I've been working on a Hyroplate Orbital Mechanics simulator in my spare time lately. Written mostly in Python using Python-Ogre for graphics. I also wrote up a VSOP87E solver in C++ (the python version was too slow) for planet positions (Would FTK trust planet positions calculated by a theory with 'secular' in the name?  :D )

The app allows you to lob asteroids off of earth at various angles and velocities, and uses gravity integration to compute the trajectories. (Euler at the moment, but I plan to implement RK4)

Here's the latest screenshot so far:


Since some of the VSOP87 code is based on Celestia, I'll be GPLing it.

EDIT: Used a smaller image.
