PowerPoint? whischhhhouuuuwww, that sounds like real work. Maybe Ron could
snazz it up with a nice applet figuring out the periodicity of the center of
mass and showing the its orbital cycle vs. impulse requirements in a moving
double bipolar frame of reference? Then we could goof off for most of the rest
of it and no one else might notice...
Saludos, Doug
