Making use of boost/astronomy/coordinate/cartesian_representation.hpp for
the task given in the test is actual GSoC project and will be too much
work for the test unless you have found a better way of doing it(I'll be

had this only in my mind while I was making the test. It's up to you which
method you want to use, but it should satisfy the requirement stated in the
