About this book

The purpose of this conference is to present current research in the field of astrodynamics with a special emphasis on the use of the methods of chaos theory and dynamical systems to find low energy trajectories. Applications to current and future space missions and to dynamical astronomy are given. The paper by Edward Belbruno describes a new way to orbit the Moon that offers enormous fuel savings over the more traditional lunar orbits, as well as offering a new methodology for an Earth-Moon transportation and a lunar communication system suitable to service a lunar base. Other topics include interstellar mission concepts, relativity, advanced propulsion, guidance and control, celestial mechanics, near Earth objects, and space policy.
