There are three main steps in the process: First to Launch spacecraft into circular orbit around the Earth. And then accelerate the spacecraft at the appropriate point in its orbit around the Earth to transfer the spacecraft orbit into an elliptical orbit around the Sun such that the aphelion of the spacecraft orbit is at Mars’s orbit and perihelion is at the earth’s orbit. When the spacecraft approaches Mars, slow the spacecraft the correct amount so that it enters orbit around Mars.  After that, we will discuss sensitivity and uncertainty during the whole trip. Finally, we will conclude all the data and approaches.
