Once a spacecraft is circling Earth, instead of firing an engine at apogee to circularize the orbit high over the equator, a comparably long burn is made at perigee to elongate the orbit out to the Moon's gravitational influence.
Tidal forces raised by a planet so close to its star should circularize its orbit in a few hundred million years, as has happened with the close orbiters seen up to now.
Interactions with KBOs eventually circularize and stabilize the orbits of Uranus and Neptune.
This result, combined with radial-velocity data of the host stars, shows that both planets have almost perfectly circular orbits, in line with theoretical models showing that tidal interactions with the star will quickly circularize the orbit of a hot Jupiter.
Astronomers had expected friction to circularize the paths of newborn planets in disks of gas and dust.
MCO will use aerobraking as well as rockets to reduce its speed and circularize its path.
Next will be a series of liquid apogee engine burns on the spacecraft to raise perigee, lower inclination and circularize the orbit at the geostationary altitude of 36,000 km (22,300 miles).
In order to circularize its flight path, MGS would have had to carry double the propellant.
Tidal effects should circularize the orbit of a massive planet that's so close to its star; the energy loss that occurs when tides are raised tends to make eccentric orbits round.
Project managers initially estimated they'd need $80 million and a staff of 200 to circularize Magellan's orbit and complete two 243-day cycles of gravity mapping.
Satellite's own attitude and orbital control system will perform a series of burns to raise perigee to geo-synchronous altitude, circularize orbit and reduce inclination.
Satellite's own attitude and orbital control system will perform a series of burns to circularize orbit and reduce inclination.
