Heteroclinic connections between periodic orbits and resonance transitions in celestial mechanics.
In this paper we apply dynamical systems techniques to the problem of heteroclinic connections and resonance transitions in the planar circular restricted three-body problem. These related phenomenaExpand

Dynamical Systems, the Three-Body Problem and Space Mission Design
This paper concerns heteroclinic connections and resonance transitions in the planar circular restricted 3-body problem, with applications to the dynamics of comets and asteroids and the design ofExpand

Low Energy Transfer to the Moon
In 1991, the Japanese Hiten mission used a low energy transfer with a ballistic capture at the Moon which required less Δ Vthan a standard Hohmann transfer. In this paper, we apply the dynamicalExpand

Constructing a Low Energy TransferBetween Jovian Moons
There has recently been considerable interest in sending a spacecraft to orbit Europa, the smallest of the four Galilean moons of Jupiter. The trajectory design involved in effecting a capture byExpand

Connecting orbits and invariant manifolds in the spatial restricted three-body problem
The invariant manifold structures of the collinear libration points for the restricted three-body problem provide the framework for understanding transport phenomena from a geometrical point of view.Expand

The Genesis Trajectory and Heteroclinic Connections
Genesis will be NASA's first robotic sample return mission to return to the Earth. The purpose of this mission is to collect solar wind samples for two years in an LI halo orbit and return them toExpand

Multiple Gravity Assists, Capture, and Escape in the Restricted Three-Body Problem
For low energy spacecraft trajectories such as multimoon orbiters for the Jupiter system, multiple gravity assists by moons could be used in conjunction with ballistic capture to drastically decreaseExpand

Near-Earth Asteroid Mining
The near-Earth asteroids are likely targets for resources to support space industrialization, as they appear to be the least expensive source of certain needed raw materials. Furthermore,Expand

Isolates of Fusarium graminearum collected 40–320 meters above ground level cause Fusarium head blight in wheat and produce trichothecene mycotoxins
The aerobiology of fungi in the genus Fusarium is poorly understood. Many species of Fusarium are important pathogens of plants and animals and some produce dangerous secondary metabolites known asExpand

Shoot the Moon
In 1991, the Japanese Hiten mission used a low energy transfer with a ballistic capture at the Moon which required less ΔV than a standard Hohmann transfer to the Moon. In this paper, we apply theExpand
