Unformatted text preview: and phasing angle to transfer a spacecraft from the Earth to Mars. Problem 3 (10pts): On bielliptic transfers Solve problem 6.16 page 379 of textbook (current edition). The problem is about analyzing a particular bielliptic when the intermediary radius is at in±nity. Further study: Further reading on bielliptic transfers (section 6.4) and studying other transfer would be interesting in general. Chapter 8, section 2, is also relevant for the intercept maneuvers. At this time, however, you should start on the trajectory design for the project. Optional problem (bielliptic transfer): Solve problem 6.17 page 380 of textbook (current edition). 1...
