Description:

Four hundred years ago, the German astronomer Johannes Kepler described his concept of the laws of planetary motion in his work, "Astronomia nova". These important laws remain important concepts for students of physics, and those who work with such students will find much of interest on this particular site. Created by David P. Stern (a retired physicist at the Goddard Space Flight Center), the site consists of an overview of Kepler's laws, with examples, applications, problems and related history. The material is based on a talk that Stern gave in Maryland, and visitors will find that this resource is both accessible and very thorough.
