Welcome to the poliastro wiki!

poliastro is an open source pure Python package dedicated to problems arising in Astrodynamics and Orbital Mechanics, such as orbit propagation, solution of the Lambert's problem, conversion between position and velocity vectors and classical orbital elements and orbit plotting, focusing on interplanetary applications. It is released under the MIT license.

These are our Core principles :rocket:

Older editions

poliastro was accepted in the ESA Summer of Code in Space (SOCIS) program for the first time in 2017.

ESA Summer of Code in Space is a program run by the European Space Agency. It aims at offering student developers stipends to write code for various space-related open source software projects. Through SOCIS, accepted student applicants are paired with a mentor or mentors from the participating projects, thus gaining exposure to real-world software development scenarios. In turn, the participating projects are able to more easily identify and bring in new developers.
