Three Body Orbit Problem

Consider the problem of determining the path of a space vehicle that is subject to the gravitational forces of both the earth and the moon. These spreadsheets, done as a student project by Adnan Marquez-Borbon,
use a second order Runga-Kutta integration to simulate the path of the vehicle. You can alter the initial conditions to see the resulting path. The earth and the moon are fixed for this project.
