Many years ago to put together a presentation or article on celestial 
mechanics, spherical trig, trajectory analysis, etc. I would use a 
compass, ruler, and maybe a French curve to draw the figures, coordinate 
axes, etc. on paper. Labels would be typed onto the sheets. I would like 
to think that over the last decade that some modest software package 
might be available to do this. Does anyone know of any?

           a cube whose side is 5.52*10**-6 meters (tiny!). That
           adds up to a 150 pound person. It's not a surprise that
           we are mostly space. (Calculation by WTW)
