Can two objects solar powered, equal in weight, traveling on the same orbital path in the opposite directions propel each other to intersect on the opposite side of the Earth in alignment to propel again gaining altitude in orbit?
Compared to most normal artificial satellites would propellant used adjust altitude or coarse from orbital perturbation could be negated by alternating magnetic fields OMA?
Does an orbit exist in which orbital perturbation effects both parts in favor alignment?
I understand that in a lower orbit, when you increase speed you gain altitude - and to maintain a higher orbit you must then decrease the speed less than what the lower orbit speed was.
Can the velocity be increased, then decreased on the first pass or by 2 rings one that pushes and the other pulls while inside the OMA would the passenger it would feel a quick-lifting jerk?
Alternative or in conjunction: After the acceleration on the 1st pass the object and OMA then meet on the opposite side of the Earth on the 2nd pass to decelerate to reestablish orbit at a higher altitude?
Could they at the least maintain orbit?
Would there be any practical use of this device like kicking other nonfunctional satellites out of orbit?
Starting low around the Earth, the device orbits in one direction and the ship in the opposite direction. As they are equal in weight, they would propel each other and then slow on the opposite side of the Earth off each other to gain altitude and maintain orbit.
Once it has the maximum speed that a ship can stay in orbit the ship would break orbit and possibly pass through another much heavier device orbiting the moon to laterally propel the ship. Then Mars and its moons can be used to come back and forth for a less propellant way of travel?
This is not a particle or magnetic accelerator but a gif (picture) of a Earth magnet passing through a copper tube that shows that you could also have a magnetic decelerator be in orbit of a planet and use it to slow incoming ships before re entry.
