The project is aimed at improvement of currently implemented Poliastro propagators (cure long-time propagation problems, measure performance, use better ODE solvers) and also implementation of various perturbation effects such as J2-coefficients, 3rd body effects. The secondary goals include implementing higher-order corrections to orbit, moving already existing code to the project (low-thrust trajectories, Solar drag, e t.c.) and creation of Jupyter notebooks demonstrating all the new advances.
