Orbital motion in Python and TurtleArt

Intended to demonstrate two things,
a) that programmable simulations are good ways for kids to learn
physics and maths
b) that the programmable block provides a way for kids to move from
simple drag and drop programming to more complicated text based

Tony's point is that the programmable block allows users to explore
Python at any level they like, from a single function call up. This
will be an essential part of my strategy for teaching CS and
programming through Turtle Art.

Silent Thunder (默雷/धर्ममेघशब्दगर्ज/دھرممیگھشبدگر ج) is my name
And Children are my nation.
The Cosmos is my dwelling place, The Truth my destination.
