For pedagogic / scientific diffusion purpose (gravity shape spacetime).

F5 in Star_planet_satellite_animation.m or Star_planet_satellite_animation in console to run the main program and create the animation file named 'Star_planet_satellite_system.gif' that will appear in the same directory as you registered this .m file.

Parameters -like the ones for the display- may be tuned in the file header.
For instance set sat_path_on / planet_path_on to false/true to disable/enable the satellite/planet path.

To benefit from the file documentation attached, be sure to download the file, not to just copy and paste it.
