Resonant Dwarf Planet Orbits | Worldbuilding

  • In which I show you how to construct orbits for Resonant Dwarf/Kuiper Belt objects. Topics discussed in this video include mean motion resonances (1st order and beyond), the kuiper belt; plutinos, twotinos and other trans-Neptunian objects, and finally the classical/Keplerian orbital elements these types of objects.
