Copernicus is a spacecraft trajectory design and optimization application developed at the NASA Johnson Space Center. Copernicus is written in Fortran and uses many features of the latest language standards. The tool is used for a wide range of projects at NASA, including the upcoming Artemis missions to flight test the Orion spacecraft and then return humans to the Moon. This presentation will give a brief overview of the software, its history, how it was designed, and how it is used.
