Satellites' rendezvous and docking is a challenging problem for space exploitation. Saving time, fuel, or any other resource, expressed for example as a combination of the two previous ones, is not a straightforward task if onboard calculation is required to make the control autonomous. A direct method for a rapid generation of near-optimal trajectories of(More)

ENGINEERING NOTES are short manuscripts describing new developments or important results of a preliminary nature. These Notes should not exceed 2500 words (where a figure or table counts as 200 words). Following informal review by the Editors, they may be published within a few months of the date of receipt. Style requirements are the same as for regular(More)
The binding of six furocoumarins (angelicin, psoralen, 8-methoxypsoralen, 5-methoxypsoralen, 8-methylpsoralen, 4,5'8-trimethylpsoralen) to human serum and human serum albumin was studied by equilibrium dialysis using tritium labelled compounds. The results indicated that in serum all furocoumarins are bound mostly by albumin, the extent of binding being(More)
