This mission is illustrated in Fig. 3. Japan’s Hayabusa spacecraft carried out a rendezvous mission. It traveled alongside of asteroid 25143 Itokawa. It also released a small lander, which touched down on the surface of the asteroid. This soft landing also represents a rendezvous event. 32 Scientific Satellite Spacecraft Fig. 2. The long range reconnaissance imager (LORRI) on the New Horizons spacecraft took this image of Jupiter’s moon Io on March 1, 2007 (Credit: NASA/Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory/Southwest Research Institute).

2002) g Value of k is approximate because of Eros’ irregular shape b It takes a satellite less time to orbit our Moon than Earth. This is because our Moon’s gravity is weaker. 5) ( ) In this equation, P is the orbital period in days, a is the average distance to a body’s center in km and k is a constant. 6. 7 lists the first satellites to orbit other Solar System bodies. Lagrangian Points In 1772, Joseph Lagrange demonstrated that in the presence of two high-mass bodies, m1 and m2, a third body, m3, may remain in a stable position.

In this chapter, we will give an overview of the different types of spacecraft missions. Afterwards, we will describe seven specific spacecraft in detail. These seven and the countries/agencies that launched them are: Chang’e-1 (China), Chandrayaan-1 (India), Hayabusa (Japan), Hubble Space Telescope (United States), Cassini (United States and the European Space Agency), Spektr-R (Russia) and Gaia (European Space Agency). 1 lists the advantages and disadvantages of the flyby, rendezvous, orbiter, lander, sample return and human missions.
