Abstract

Exploring the moons of Saturn, particularly Enceladus, is an important goal of planetary science, the more so for search of life outside the Earth. The use of Electrodynamic Tethers (ET) in Jupiter suggests an interesting question: would it be possible to use them for the other three Outer Giant Planets, in particular, Saturn? This work explores the design of the manoeuvers associated with the capture of a tethered S/C in a mission to Saturn.
