             abstract = "This work aims to find an alternative solution to the important 
                         problem of deflecting asteroids that are coming too close to 
                         Earth, with the risk of collision. This alternative is based on 
                         the use of a device with a large area/mass ratio attached by a 
                         tether to use solar radiation pressure (SRP) to help to deflect 
                         the trajectory of the asteroid. The paper describes the dynamics 
                         of the system composed by the asteroid, the tether and the device. 
                         The model is then used to study the effects that the tether length 
                         and the solar radiation pressure (acting on the surface of the 
                         device) exert on the deflection of a larger Potentially Hazardous 
                         Asteroid (PHA). As a starting point, the tether is assumed to be 
                         inextensible and massless and the motion is described only in the 
                         plane of the orbit of the PHA around the Sun.",
