Abstract: Currently, it requires many complicated math calculations to determine the most efficient orbital transfer maneuvers. We would like to design a program that autonomously concludes the optimal route for spacecraft from Earth to various destinations in the solar system at any given time based upon time, fuel consumption, and safety considerations.
