When a satellite is orbiting the earth in an elliptic orbit, it has a certain inclination with respect to the earth's equator. The usual way to change the inclination is perform a maneuver by firing the rocket engines at the periapsis of the ellipse. This then forces the satellite into the desired inclination. There is a substantially more fuel efficient way to change the inclination. This is done by an indirect route by first doing a maneuver to bring the satellite to the moon on a BCT (Ballistic Capture Transfer). At the moon, the satellite is in the s...


1. A method of changing at least one of an inclination and an altitude of an object including at least one of a space vehicle, satellite and rocket, using a computer implemented process, comprising the sequential or non-sequential steps of:(a) traveling from the earth or the earth orbit to a weak lunar capture in a WSB or WSB orbit; (b) performing a maneuver and optionally performing an inclination change at the WSB or the WSB orbit; and (c) traveling from the WSB or the WSB orbit to the earth or the earth orbit at a predetermined arbitrary altitude and ...
