Beauty of Orbits

I think that the way this was originally sent to me conveys the meaning better than any rewording I could do:

Equation of orbit of a small mass around a much greater mass

Equation of human awe of earth orbit

So now that you've watched it, you should have a greater appreciation of gravitational forces and centripetal ones, the whole Fc=mv2/r and Fg=GM1M2/r2 and such.

Or maybe you just affirmed that space is really freaking awesome, and a lot prettier than anyone gives it credit for. I'll take that too. Earth looks pretty cool from up there.
