    An ethnic German from Transylvania, Hermann Julius Oberth came to his spaceflight insights before World War I. In he published the book "The Rocket into Interplanetary Space." In it he discussed the feasibility of human spaceflight, laid out the basic equations of rocketry, and described how liquid propellants could vastly exceed the performance of gunpowder rockets.

    interplanetary flight: an introduction to astronautics by arthur c. clarke. first page is stamped: “sir arthur c. clarke, cbe, no 25 barnes place, colombo 7,sri lanka”. a really nice and rare collection of a.c. clarke Rating: % positive. This book is intended as a survey of the possibilities and problems of interplanetary flight, as far as they can be foreseen at the present day. Although the science of “astronautics” still belongs to the future, many of its basic conceptions will remain unaltered by the passage of time, and most of the fundamental techniques already exist.

Let us suppose we make an interplanetary flight. As long as the S/C is within the SOI of the departure planet, the impact of the Sun can be neglected, and we get a hyperbolic departure orbit. When passing the SOI boundary the planetocentric hyperbolic orbit crosses over into a heliocentric transit trajectory.
