A two-line element set is a data format encoding a list of orbital elements of an Earth-orbiting object for a given point in time, the epoch. Wikipedia

As I stared using the TLEs provided by celestrack here some years ago, I had to somehow parse the TLEs in order to use them. After parsing all of it in python, I layed down the project for my 2018 and 2019 Jugend Forscht projects generating and simulating galaxies.

A week ago, I thought “what about giving the satellite project another go, but in go?” (pun intended). And so, I started building a package parsing given TLEs.
