Re: Preferred Phase 3 Orbits

A guess (and its only that the future Mrs. Oler is the rocket scientist) is 
that if the sole propulsive method available is the arcjet then a plane 
change isnt in the cards (again just guessing here).

If a plane change is desired then it might be possible to reorientate the 
nozzle so that the "leak" leaks in the direction of one but at the rate 
things are changing it strikes me that not much of a plane change is likely. 
  Plane changes are very very expensive in terms of energy.
