             abstract = "This paper has the goal of calculating transfer trajectories 
                         between two coplanar orbits using several impulses, trying to find 
                         solutions that reduce the costs related to the fuel consumption 
                         required to apply these impulses. The number of impulses is given 
                         a priori, and a genetic algorithm is used to find the maneuvers 
                         that spent less fuel to be completed. Several types of maneuvers 
                         are simulated, including constrained maneuvers, where the 
                         spacecraft is forced to pass by intermediate orbits, and maneuvers 
                         that transfer a spacecraft from one body back to the same body. 
                         The method worked in all the situations and the maneuvers were 
                         found in all the situations.",
