Space missions to libration points are an interesting opportunity to perform deep space explorations reducing costs and risks and to obtain better results by taking advantages of invariant manifolds of periodic orbits. This paper studies the chaining of periodic orbits via their invariant manifolds to provide various types of low energy orbits for space exploration, particularly in the Sun-Earth-Moon system. Recent work shows that this approach may be used to design planetary flyby and… CONTINUE READING
