NOWADAYS it is possible to solve all the problems concerning the determination of orbits because they are independent of every technical process. They are governed by the laws of celestial mechanics. The extent, shape and situation of the orbits are determined by the magnitude as well as by the direction of the velocity. Any variation in either, or of both, causes some variation in the orbit.
