The problem is the following:
- let's say we have a miniaturized satellite*, X;
- we know its position, velocity, acceleration, the forces applied at
any given moment;
- we also know its mass, its dimensions etc;
- the satellite tries to approach a point in space, let's say A(x, y, z).
The question is: what forces (xf, yf, zf) should we apply to our
satellite at any moment, such that the satellite reaches and stops at
(*) A satellite is a SPHERES (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SPHERES). We don't need to worry about gravitaty. The satellites move by ejecting CO2.
