Spin File Column Descriptions

Each line in the Spin table represents a body defined in the Worlds file, and gives additional information on the rotational properties of the body. The Spin and Worlds files are linked by the ID and IDName columns (and also by the Name column, but that is not guaranteed to be unique).
