orbital: Data : Normal Vectors to the Orbital Planes of the 9 Planets

Description Usage Format See Also Examples

Description

The 9 planets in our solar system are evolving the sun via their own orbits. This data provides normal vector of the orbital planes. Normal vectors are unit-norm vectors, so that they are thought to reside on 2-dimensional sphere.

Usage
