Orbits with high eccentricities for Mars Express or Venus Express space missions

Project: PHD

Project Details


The future space missions to Mars or Venus concern very eccentric orbits; the first stage of the mission is to analyse the stability or the chaos of some zones of initial conditions. The tools of celestial mechanics, like the chaos indicators, are tested and adapted to this spatial geodesic problem.
