Earth-Moon Aldrin Cyclers


Recommended Posts

I wrote and video'd a tutorial on creating an Aldrin Cycler between the Earth and Moon using realsolarsystem.

The core challenge is how low can you get the Delta-V for maintaining your Earth-Moon Cycler?  The one criteria I'll throw in for fair comparison is Earth PE=3000km.

There are a few optional challenges.

Create a Kerbin-Mun Aldrin Cycler.  Add the instructions to the Wiki Tutorial.

Cruise Ship design.  Show us your best tourist friendly cruise ship. It's gotta have lots of windows! Nobody wants to a t-shirt with "I went all the way to the moon with an inside cabin and saw nothing!" 

Create a Kerbin-Duna Cycler.  Tell us about your cycle times and delta-V requirements. You can start from here: https://christopherhayes.weebly.com/uploads/2/3/3/9/23399028/kerbin-duna_aldrin_cycler_draft.pdf

MechJeb? kOS?
Can you automate the recurring burns to keep this cycler running?

Get a Cycler running in Principia.
