Through Python to the Stars! - Orbital Mechanics Made Easy and Open-Source
Shreyas Bapat (~shreyasbapat) |
Orbital Mechanics/Astrodynamics is one of the most difficult things to understand and take care of! For this simple reason it is called "Rocket Science". poliastro is a python package intended to make Astrodynamics Open Source, and easy to understand and visualise. Through the talk, various modules of the poliastro package will be introduced. I will show how we can solve very complex Orbital Mechanics problem in 2 minutes that takes years for a scientist to solve manually! The talk will cover some parts of AstroPy, numba and a bunch of plotting libraries such as matplotlib and plotly.

I am Shreyas Bapat, half "Electrical Engineer" and a passionate developer. I study at Indian Institute of Technology Mandi and constantly contribute to open-source projects. I have contributed to some projects like plotly, dash, poliastro and astroquery. I like Astronomy and related fields a lot and hence keep searching for projects related to that. Also, I am into Deep Learning from quite a time and love tweaking Neural Networks to get amazing results. I am the co-ordinator and maintainer at STAC-IITMandi. I have mentored the Astronomy Code Camp organised by Nehru Planetarium and Astronomical Society of India.
