Project Lyra: Sending a spacecraft to 1I/\textquoterightOumuamua (former A/2017 U1), the interstellar asteroid
The first definitely interstellar object 1I/\textquoterightOumuamua (previously A/2017 U1) observed in our solar system provides the opportunity to directly study material from an other star system. Can such objects be intercepted? The challenge of reaching the object within a reasonable timeframe is formidable due to its high heliocentric hyperbolic excess velocity of about 26 km/s; much faster than any vehicle yet launched. This paper presents a high-level analysis of potential near-term options for a mission to 1I/\tex ...
