Final_Abstract Natural Efficiency By Gaurav Bansal

Space is a hot topic today, especially with the way the economy is. There is a strong push to make cuts in the space industry, but it is imperative to keep satellites in space for our community to continue to progress. This being the case, there is a strong push for cheap, efficient missions. For my final project, I will analyze different orbits that can be used to put a satellite to its operating orbit. Since things in nature, namely objects in space, move in an elliptical fashion, I will test and compare the efficiency of a mission with a Fibonacci Spiral as a transfer orbit against the common orbital transfers.
