  • "Explains and demonstrates that all objects in a gravitational field trace out conical sections, and that the precise shape of an orbit depends on the interplay between energy and eccentricity. Explains and demonstrates how scientists utilize the gravitational force of the sun to navigate spacecraft through space."
