The latest presentation to the Future In-Space Operations (FISO) study group is now posted in the FISO Working Group Presentations Archive. Both slides and audio are available for the talk, A Stable Home For Redirected Asteroids (And More?): Selenocentric Distant Retrograde Orbits (SDROs), Dan Adamo , Independent Astrodynamics Consultant – FISO – Nov.6.1.


Here is a video about the SDRO study:


Stable motion about the Moon in SDROs 70,000 km and 12,500 km distant is simulated by Celestia open-source 3D planetarium software. An SDRO approximately 70,000 km in radius is being contemplated as the destination for NASA’s Asteroid Redirection Mission (ARM).
