I've found this super awesome tool, provided by NASA, called Trajectory Browser. I would like to simulate some of the trajectories listed there but can't quite figure out how to convert the trajectory data into state vectors, or if it's even possible. More specifically, I'm looking at this trajectory.

Bit lost, so if somebody could lend me a helping hand, that would be super awesome!

    $\begingroup$ You should expand your comment into an answer, with as much explanation of what you found as you have the patience to give. $\endgroup$ – Russell Borogove Jun 21 '19 at 15:45
  • $\begingroup$ @HappyKoala I agree, can you post a short answer and explain what you found? Thanks! $\endgroup$ – uhoh Jun 23 '19 at 2:39
  • $\begingroup$ Hey fellows, yes, I most certainly will. Will take a couple of days, though, but as sooner as I've teased out what's going on in the code I linked to, I'm gonna come bouncing back here and hopefully shed some light on the matter for others that might be interested! $\endgroup$ – Happy Koala Jun 23 '19 at 11:37
