Schwarzschild–Kerr Gravitational Deflection of Potentially Hazardous Space Objects from Their Classical Orbits

Abstract

Distortion of classical elliptical orbits of the Apollo asteroids (crossing the Earth’s orbit) in the gravitational field modeled by the Kerr metric, is calculated, and a numerical assessment is given to the general-relativistic impact on the near-Earth motion of potentially hazardous objects (PHO).
