Hi guys, help me.
I have a code for integrate the equations of motion of three bodies in a inertial frame, and in cartesian coordinates (x, y, z, vxi, vyi, vzi), i=1,2,3. The question is, how can i use the data of JPL Horizons to obtain positions and velocities in a inertial frame?

Here's a short tutorial I wrote for my program, Gravity Simulator
http://orbitsimulator.com/gravity/tu....html#horizons But you can use the data for your own program as well. This describes the email method. In addition, Horizons also offers Telnet and Web based services.
