We have managed to generate an abstract simplex solar hierarchy. This abstract hierarchy contains no geometric data, only a binary tree of orbital nodes. We wish now to translate this abstract tree into a series of legitimate Orbital Elements, whose ellipses we want to render to screen.

In order to ascribe actual orbital data to the various stars and barycenters of a solar system, we will need a way to describe orbits in PISES. In this post, we'll get spun up on the 6 Keplerian Orbital Elements and what their limitations are.
