Re: Orbital Mechanics

Here is a web site that appears to date to 2018 ....

The comments published on the site seem favorable.

I'd be interested in any comments that more knowledgeable forum members might have.

Re: Orbital Mechanics

We rarely need to consider the third body for our Mars or Moon, or even large asteroid expeditions, due to the fact that our space vehicles are very small in comparison with these bodies and with Earth. This means that the ship has a negligible effect on the first and second bodies.
