                         to perform a mission to a triple asteroid. First, a genetic 
                         algorithm is used to find multi-impulsive maneuvers to go from the 
                         Earth to the asteroid, with minimum fuel consumption. After that, 
                         swing-by maneuvers with the two smaller bodies of the triple 
                         system are simulated and mapped to show the possible gains of 
                         energy that can be accomplished with the use of this technique. 
                         This study is made using the {"}patched conics approximation{"} 
                         and the {"}restricted three-body problem{"}, to determine the 
                         accuracy of the approximated model. The system of asteroids 2001SN 
                         is used as an example for the calculations.",
