Mission design of moon tours

Stefano Campagnola

Celestial mechanics is the discipline that studies the motion of the celestial objects; this field played an important role in the history of science. Copernicus’ book “On the revolutions of the Heavenly spheres” (1543) and Galileo’s observations of the Jovian moons (1610) are the foundation of the scientific revolution and of the scientific method. The word “revolution” itself comes from the latin revolvere, to revolve, as originally applied to the motion of the planets around the Sun.
