The ‘Foci-centric Parabolic Transfer’ based on Newtonian universal gravitational law and
Newtonian orbital solutions and Karl F. Sundman’s infinite series solution to the three-body
problem. This type of orbital maneuvre only applicable for interplanetary transfer. In this
transfer Halo orbits basic orbital type used as transfer orbit. Further it is three body problem in
orbital mechanics. A standard simplified approach for initial investigations into interplanetary
trajectories relies on reducing a complex “four-body” problem (Sun, Earth, Planet, and
Spacecraft) down to three parts of simplified “two body” problems (massive body and
Spacecraft). To consider trajectories to and orbits about the escape point, one must address the
“three body problem,” which involves two massive masses and a much smaller third mass (the
spacecraft). Although geometrically transfer orbit is highly elliptical orbit having eccentricity
tends to one and one focus at central core of source planet and second focus at central core of
Now a day’s space exploration and space tourism is a burning topic; for which Hohmann
transfer used to inter-planetary transfer, which is defined as, transfer from one circular orbit
to another circular orbit by elliptical transfer orbit, invented by German scientist Walter
Hohmann in 1925. This transfer is consuming much time which might major concern about
it; while interplanetary mission especially manned mission.
Here is new transfer idea with less time consumable and simply conductive, ‘The Foci
Centric Parabolic Transfer’ which is only applicable for inter-planetary transfers. Transfer
from sphere of influence of one planet to sphere of influence of another planet by parabolic
escape path, considering that foci at the cores of both planets, is known as Foci-centric
parabolic transfer. This transfer able to reduce about 60% to 80% time as compare to
This basis for this research originally stemmed from my passion for developing better
methods of space exploration and orbit transfer. As the world moves further into the space
tourism era, generating such powerful rockets and spacecraft for establishment of human
colony on other planets, there will be a greater need to do transfer in fast and durable rate.
How will we develop it?
"It is my passion to not only find but also develop different types of
interplanetary transfers to break down barriers of durability and time limit for further generations."
