Questions related to causing a spacecraft to slow down by flying through a planet's atmosphere to produce aerodynamic drag.
Aerobraking is a spaceflight maneuver that reduces the high point of an elliptical orbit (apoapsis) by flying the vehicle through the atmosphere at the low point of the orbit (periapsis). The resulting drag slows the spacecraft.
