Space trajectory design is aimed to achieve a variety of scientific or engineering objectives under certain dynamical and technological constraints. Modern space projects tend to be ambitious, versatile, and low-cost and are thus faced with greater dynamical and operational challenges. I will talk about the mission and trajectory design considered in the three-body problem. While it is impossible to cover everything within this scope, I will present the case studies I have done for JAXA’s DESTINY and MMX missions, 2 CubeSat missions, and a conceptual asteroid retrieval mission, as well as the general (e.g., gravity assists and libration-point dynamics) and specific techniques (e.g., the J2-Elliptic model and the “Jacobi-Swingby” graph).
