Space Elevator Operator

Created by Ivan Miloslavov and Stephen Cohen

This program presents the orbits that satellites delivered by a Space Elevator would take when released from various launch altitudes along the tether. To start, press Play and adjust the rate of time lapse. Create a New Climber and send a payload to the launch altitude of your choice in however many days of transit you desire. Send as many climbers as you wish.

If you have questions or ideas for improvment, as well as if you have found bugs, feel free to email Ivan at MiloslavovIvan[at]gmail[dot]com . If you want to know more about the Space Elevator, visit the International Space Elevator Consortium website.
