LUNAR TRAJECTORY MECHANICS

Peer Reviewed

Abstract: Most of the information regarding the external physical environment of the Earth has been derived from radiation passing through the atmos here. The benefits to mankind to be derive I! from the extension of our knowledge of the universe can be foreseen only in a vague way, but there is little doubt that there exist tremendous amouts to be learned, and that this knowledge will have a profound effect on humanity. Examples from the past are numerous; the most obvious from the standpoint of the general public is the slow development of knowledge of the nucleus of the atom, partly obtained from astronomical observations, which culminated so spectacularly in the energy release of fission and fusion after the means of exploring the nucleus were available.
