I'm seeking a software which helps in the visualization of solar sail trajectories.
If I'm not mistaken, the European Space Agency uses Celestia to render trajectories for the general public.
I know that Celestia allows one to define Keplerian orbits. Is it also possible to define non-Keplerian orbits and let the software compute and display the trajectory? My current idea is to use Matlab in order to generate a list of points of the orbit, and plot those in Celestia.
Is there a software which helps generate and visualize arbitrary non-Keplerian orbits? Specifically, I would like to compute several Earth Mars trajectories and make figures out of them to include them in a report.
My objective is to play around with several interplanetary cycling orbits which could be used by solar sails. Is there any software you would recommend for that? I do not mind using several different programs, e.g. one for generating a discrete list of points of an orbit, and another one for visualization.
