People always ask this million dollar question of " What is the best path/trajectory to take to reach a certain orbit or point in space".
Chandrayaan-2 had a pretty neat transfer to the moon, it took a while but it got there efficiently. Check this link: https://earthsky.org/space/chandrayaan-2-successful-lunar-transfer-trajectory
I wanted to make a simple analysis (in MATLAB) to find the optimized path to go from a earth orbit to a lunar orbit taking Chandrayaan-2 as a case study.
I guess I should optimize in terms of time and fuel? What theory should be applied to calculate such transfers (keywords or online examples and references)?
