Numerically solve torque-free motion with conservation of angular momentum and energy. Includes plots of Poisson's energy ellipsoid construct, momentum sphere, and an additional 3D animation of the motion using an equivalent prism.
Made based on my experience as an attitude determination and control student. Feel free to comment errors and I'll update the release and credit the correction
