Kip is developing an analytical model of drag on satellites in low earth orbit. The flow of atmosphere over these satellites behaves less like a continuum and more like a statistical distribution of particles because the air molecules are spread apart. The goal of this research project is to analytically describe the force of drag to improve predictions of the velocity and position of both satellites and space debris.
