Nice work! Here’s some comment/suggestions. Feel free to use them or not! Just trying to be helpful. Best regards.
“with the attitude and orbit control subsystem (AOCS)”
It should read:
“with the altitude and orbit control subsystem (AOCS)”
The following paragraphs should be shortened. It takes to much space and time before we actually goes into the main subject of your blog post. It’s also no longer relevant for new users of Julia. the mian informations could be included in the previous paragraph where you speak about FORTRAN.
" By that time (using v0.2 I think), Julia was a really new language. But I decided to accept the rough edges and try to code my algorithms using it. Anyway, it was just a personal side project to learn more about orbits. I did face many bugs, I had to use
master (pre-v0.3) due to some bugs and missing features, but it was fun
After some years (and huge rewrites due to breaking changes), Julia released its v0.4. In this time, given the amount of code I had and the state of the language, I started to see that this bunch of algorithms can indeed be used for something at INPE to help in my activities. Hence, I decided to create a private package, which was called SatToolbox.jl , to organize everything I have done."
