Escape! A Computer Solution to the Restricted Three-Body Problem

##
John G. Scudder

The task of finding the lowest energy escape from the Earth-Sun system is non-trivial. We investigate this problem thoroughly using microcomputer simulation techniques. The coarse features of the system are determined and three non-trivial fine features are identified. We attempt to determine the launch angle for the minimum escape as a function of the Earth-Sun mass partition.
