Abstract

Science fiction movies have accustomed us to spaceships that fly in space as if they were advanced jet fighters. But the reality is very different. Flying in space requires careful planning and coordination between the crew of the vehicle and controllers on the ground or aboard a space station towards which it is heading or from which it is departing.
