    On coplanar equilibria of a space station on the cable fixed in an asteroid

    2012, Vol. 8, No. 2, pp.  309-322

    Author(s): Rodnikov A. V.

    We study a space station equilibria on the cable called «the leier» with ends placed in poles of a dynamically-symmetric asteroid. We suggest some criteria of these equilibria stability for the station fixed on the leier. Using condition for V.V. Beletsky’s Generalized Restricted Circular Problem of Three Bodies we classify coplanar equilibria, i.e. equilibria in the plane composed by axes of dynamical symmetry and precession if the asteroid gravitational field is close to gravitational field of two particles of equal masses.
