Ed Belbruno and the NASA GRAIL Mission

Ed Belbruno (Math Ph.D. '79) presented the weak stability boundary theory and the alternative approach to space travel he developed in the 1980s at the Hayden Planetarium of the American Museum of Natural History on Monday, July 20th at 7:30pm.  NASA’s GRAIL mission is one of the few missions to utilize the chaos associated with the subtle gravitational forces between planets in order to reach lunar orbit. More details can be read at NASA, and OrbitalHub interviews Belbruno on his work related to the mission.
