月球上的第二个人巴斯·奥尔德林(Buzz Aldrin)单手计算了一种称为“火星骑行”的轨道技术,该技术可使航天器仅进行一次初始推进就可以在地球和火星之间永久移动。 机组人员将登上并通过辅助航天器返回,从而节省了燃料。

Buzz Aldrin,Aldrin自行车的发现者

火星循环器(或地球-火星循环器)是一种定期遇到地球和火星的航天器轨迹。 术语“火星循环器”也可以指火星循环器轨迹上的航天器。 Aldrin循环仪是火星循环仪的一个示例。

骑自行车的人可能会使用最少的推进剂(依靠重力辅助飞越来实现大部分的轨迹变化)在这些物体之间运输人或物,并且可以携带重辐射屏蔽层,以保护在途的人免受宇宙射线和太阳风暴的影响。

地球-火星骑自行车的人

骑自行车的人是一条经常碰到两个或两个以上身体的轨迹。 一旦建立了轨道,就不需要推进器就可以在航天飞机之间穿梭了。 继续阅读(7分钟阅读)

13 thoughts on “Buzz Aldrin, the second man on the moon, singlehandedly calculated an orbital technique called “Mars Cycling” which would allow for spacecraft to perpetually travel between Earth and Mars with only a single initial boost. Crew would board and return via a secondary spacecraft, saving fuel.”

    The Aldrin Cycle mothership spacecraft is still seen as the most efficient way to transport material to and from Mars. It’s quite an innovative concept.

    It would also work between Earth and the Moon

    Apparently Aldrin had a reputation around NASA and other astronauts for being cocky. But he also had a reputation for being able to back up his attitude with his skills

    He played Kerbal Space Program and travelled back to the past to tell himself how to do it.

    I met Buzz Aldrin 30 years ago. I think it was at the national air and space museum in DC. I remember looking at his name tag and saying, “pffft, your name isn’t really Buzz.” He said “Yeah it is,” or something to that effect. I walked away thinking he was an idiot.

    Years later I remembered the event, and realized it was I, in fact, who was the idiot.

    Give a guy credit when due, but Buzz only theorized it was possible from how it reads. Previous work was done 15 years earlier by someone else laying groundwork for this theory with Venus. Then according to this link he didn’t proof it, Jet Propulsion Laboratories did. I think what Buzz really did was use his status to give credibility to the idea, equally important though. The science community kind of infuriates me because as much as they are open to discovery, any ideas that are too “extreme” are laughed at. They (general term for scientists) love to criticize other scientists on more fringe topics… I experience it pretty regularly on a smaller scale. They won’t believe you til you prove it, but you can’t prove it because nobody believes you (to get funding or support ).

    Avenue 5 has taught me that they could also change course by expelling all the poo.

    Someone’s been watching Scott Manley recently…

    I too invented “mars cycling” but it involves me biking to lose weight but then consuming mars bars and perpetually staying at the same weight.

    It’s actually called the Rich Purnell maneuver.

    I love how every article has to clarify, “Buzz was the SECOND man on the moon.” Not to he confused with that total Chad Armstrong who strong armed that beta buzz out the way to be the FIRST man in the moon.

    He was nicknamed “Dr. Rendevouz” for a reason. His doctorate is in orbital mechanics. He wasnt just a pretty face, he was a smart guy at NASA…..
