Hi all,

It fills us with astronomical joy to announce the release of *poliastro
0.7.0*! 🚀

poliastro is a pure Python library that allows you to simulate and analyze
interplanetary orbits in a Jupyter notebook in an interactive and easy
way, used
by people from all around the world

This release is the biggest one since the creation of the project in terms
of code changes and new features, and on behalf of the poliastro
development team I would like to deeply thank the European Space Agency for
the SOCIS grant that made it possible.

Highlights from this release include:

* New package for reading NEOs data (asteroids and comets)
* Coordinate frame transformations
* pip packaging
* New patched conics functions for the Kerbal Space Program fans!

As an example, a Jupyter notebook analyzing the orbit of the Florence
asteroid, that passed near the Earth earlier this month, is available:!.html
