This template don't need any parameters and instead uses only {{Body data}} to gather the data. Because of this the orbital and physical properties are stored in a subpage named Param.

To orbital information is deactivated (for example Kerbol) when {{Body data}} for the property parent returns nothing. The atmospheric information is only visible when {{Body data}} for the property pressure returns a value higher than 0.

Ingame the apsides are shown from the body surface. But because all values which depend on them needs to be from the center the values must be from the centers of the bodies.


Some values are calculated automatically:

  • Semi-major axis & Orbital eccentricity: Apoapsis, Periapsis, Synodic orbital period, Orbital velocity, Solar day, Sphere of influence
  • Semi-major axis (km): Sidereal orbital period
  • Radius & Surface gravity: Mass, Sidereal orbital period, Density, Synchronous orbit, Orbital velocity
  • Radius (km): Surface area
  • Surface gravity (gees): Gravitational parameter, Sphere of influence
  • Sidereal rotation period (s): Sidereal rotational velocity, Synchronous orbit, Solar day
  • Atmospheric pressure (in atm): Atmospheric pressure (in kPa)

The Synodic orbital period is not defined for Kerbin.
