Sling Shot Magic

Click the titles to the left to understand that the invention of gravity propelled interplanetary space travel represented a radically new theory of space travel completely different from the classical theory based on reaction propulsion as described by Newton's Third Law of Motion.  Gravity propelled space travel represented a mathematical method of space travel made possible by finding a numerical solution of the famous "Restricted Three Body Problem" of celestial mechanics and applying the solution serially to achieve a free-fall trajectory that is accelerated through the solar system by passing a series of planets without using any rocket propulsion.
