Default Sattelites orbiting earth

I've created a script that does orbital mechanics (based on earth's parameters). It creates and stores the trajectory, with velocities and other information regarding the orbit, initially I started with a matlab script and simulated real-time how the sattelite would orbit the planet. Some orbits could take several hours, so I added a multiplier to speed up the motion. Obviously used scaling, since we can't make a planet the size of earth in the SA-map. The sattelite in the pictures represent a SpaceX dragon capsule connected to a Bigelow cabin (which has a diameter in reality of about 20 meters). I also added 2 pictures where 2 sattelites are orbiting after one another, that just shows how small these objects are at a distance.

- Currently looking for modellers (blender) and mappers that would like to help me with this project. Please PM me if you'd like to!

Enjoy the pics, a video coming sooner or later..

Probably will take some time. Will create modular models, so spacecrafts can be connected to one another. So will the interiors.
Maybe gonna throw in a launch video. And mapping that's important.

Are you the guy that had a "small idea" to make a space-travelling server? If so, then you're doing a good job.
