Product Description
The International Space Station circles the Earth, so why do maps of its orbit show it going up and down like a roller coaster? Do the Orbital Orange edible experiment to understand why!

Activity aids in understanding mapping from 3-D to 2-D. The Further Study questions address how ground track maps show seasonal variations in day/night portions of orbits, how launch location impacts inclination, and how spacecraft orbit the center of mass.
