  • On the mechanisms of natural transport in the solar system 

    Masdemont Soler, Josep; Ren, Yuan; Gómez Muntané, Gerard; Fantino, Elena (2010)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Some minor bodies in the solar system (i.e., comets, asteroids and planetary ejecta) are capable of performing transfers from their original location to very distant places, provided they possess sufficiently large ...
  • On the relationship between the weak stability boundary region of the earth and the low-energy transfers to the moon 

    Masdemont Soler, Josep; Ren, Yuan; Gómez Muntané, Gerard; Fantino, Elena (2009)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    The term Weak Stability Boundary (WSB) is related to a region of stable motion around the second primary of a circular restricted three-body problem (CR3BP). Previous work on this subject has shown that, at a given energy ...

  • Optimal low-thrust transfers between libration point orbits 

    Ren, Yuan; Pergola, Pierpaolo; Fantino, Elena; Thiere, B. (2012-01)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Over the past three decades, ballistic and impulsive trajectories between libration point orbits (LPOs) in the Sun–Earth–Moon system have been investigated to a large extent. It is known that coupling invariant manifolds ...
  • Two mechanisms of natural transport in the Solar System 

    Ren, Yuan; Gomez Muntaner, Gerard; Masdemont Soler, Josep; Fantino, Elena (2011)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    In this paper, two natural transport mechanisms in Solar System are considered. The first is a short-time transport, and is based on the existence of ‘‘pseudo-heteroclinic’’ connections between libration point orbits of ...
