Gravity Friction Launch Elliptical Orbit Circular Orbit Planet Assist

What are the benifits of a planet "fly by"? I hope this will be general enough to be understood and detailed enough to be educational.

The information contained in this page is for estimating purposes only.

When you think you have the right stuff, enter this challenge. When you are finished designing the craft, Press Launch and see what happens.

Challenge: [Thrust and the Design of Elliptical and Circular Orbits]

[Planet assist challenge.]

 

 

 

 

Interplanetary Flight launch velocity and flight time with assist

  1. Compute the Major Axis of the flight path: ma = (d1 + dt) / 2

d1 = Distance of launch body from the Sun, dt = Distance of the target body from the Sun, ma = Length of the major axis
