Plotting a Mars Mission Trajectory
We have developed a program (Beta version) that calculates and plots a spacecraft trajectory to Mars for various scenarios. from the program output, we can derive thrusts, fuel capacity, applied forces, and varying coordinate systems throughout the mission.
The program’s proof of concept is in the “Starship Trajectory for a 2024 Mars Mission” Article, where all data in the article have been the output of the Mars Trajectory Program.
Fusion reactors are an emerging technology that will disrupt how we approach design and function in space. Understanding the technology and identifying possible Space Architecture design options will allow us to organically interpret a fusion-powered space industry’s subsequent needs.
