A computer simulation of the Earth to Mars trajectory was developed that generates a faster, more efficient mission profile than any Mars mission to date. My "Theory of F and G Functions" was developed to establish a theoretical basis for this super-fast trajectory. The Theory suggests far faster mission scenarios are possible, perhaps on the order of a Babylon 5 Type Jump Gate ~ in theory. The full source code of the program is available, with some flow diagrams showing how the Artificial Intelligence (AI) algorithm works. The whole Theory is also on my website, including a textbook on the fundamentals of celestial mechanics.

The "f and g equations" are a solution to the Two Body Equation, for the gravitational forces of one body orbiting another. I show these "f and g equations" represent two new gravitational forces. These "f and g forces" have contributed to the very high failure rate of missions to Mars. One of the forces originates near Mars' orbit, and it is not accounted for in typical trajectory models. This force near Mars is also the cause of a mysterious aspect of the geology of Mars which could only have been done by huge oceans of water existing there for aeons. Any more water than that is physically not possible because Mars is so small that any water would quickly evaporate to space. The second force, originating near the Sun, is shown to cause a distortion in space usually attributed to Relativity. Independent, analytical proof of these "f and g forces" is presented from many perspectives: complex analysis, relativity theory, celestial mechanics, solid state physics, dynamics, fractal theory, and chaos theory.

Five spacecraft are currently en route to Mars ~ will they arrive OK?
