This paper determines the near-optimal transfer trajectory of a Near-Earth Asteroid (NEA) to an orbit in the Earth-Moon system through the use of an ion beam redirection method. The ion beam method is a hovering approach to asteroid redirection. The method operates through the use of two diametrically opposed thrusters. The redirection mission targets… CONTINUE READING
