A Study of the Duration of the Passage through the Van Allen Belts for a Spacecraft going to the Moon

This paper has the goal of estimating the fuel consumption and the duration of the transit in the Van Allen belts for a flight of a spacecraft going from the Earth to the Moon. This problem is very important because the region interior to the belts have a high density of energetic charged particles that can damage the satellite, so minimizing this transit time helps in protecting the equipments on board. The propulsive force is assumed to have a low magnitude and to be applied in the direction of the motion of the spacecraft ...
