A downloadable project for Windows

I created this prototype in 1 week and submitted it to Nasa's SpaceApps Challenge 2017. The project page can be found here.

This application is basically an interactive screensaver in which a dozen Earth observing satellites orbit the Earth. The satellites shown are currently on active missions and their orbits are approximated using Nasa provided data and a physics model. More info is available on the project's SpaceApps page.

Thanks for checking it out!
