Apogalacticon and the army of the dark empire!



We all know Apogee and Perigee from rocketry work, and also those of us in the deep space camp often use the helion, astron, jove, lune... but here are a few new ones to boot. Apogalacticon is the best, and also probably the most crazy orbit you can have in this Universe.

Cool. I thought apogee and perigee applied to everything. I guess you learn something every day!

Indeed!

Apoapsis and Periapsis are, I think (spelling) the general words for any orbit.
