LHACK4142 Posted June 10, 2022 Share Posted June 10, 2022 We all know how to get to another celestial body- get the right angle and burn prograde. You get an intercept with your target body. When at your periapsis, burn retrograde. You're now orbiting your target body. Apparently, the Hohmann transfer is often the most efficient way to get to another body. This is accomplished with 2 prograde burns, which does not seem to be what the "normal" transfer does, even if you use the parent body as a reference frame. How do you do a Hohmann transfer in KSP, and what are the differences between such a transfer and the "normal" one? Thanks. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
