Danger, Here Be Maths

A description of the latest research rabbit hole over at SSDS: where could you put a ping pong ball on the outside of the ISS, let go, and have it stick thanks to orbital mechanics? There is math and pretty pictures.

It’s also a test of \LaTeX  equations in wordpress. So far, so good.

Trying to convey mathematics digitally is the biggest area where using a computer adds more hassle to life rather than reducing it. If you have any good solutions, please let me know!
