# Scratch pad for visualizing bound, timelike geodesics in Kerr spacetime

Enter orbital parameters $$(a, p, e, \theta_\text{inc})$$ to plot the orbit. Note that currently the code will not tell you if the parameters correspond to a bound, timelike orbit. If you are getting an empty graph try changing the parameters. After plotting the orbit you can also listen to the orbital frequencies by clicking the button underneath the orbital parameters (works in Chrome and Firefox, but not Safari). Note, you might need to plot the first orbit twice to get the correct aspect ratio in the plot. Also note that some special cases like a=0, e=0 or theta_inc = 0 do not work but you can put in values very close to zero.
