Your spacecraft is in a circular, geostationary orbit around earth and you would like to fly to the moon. Draw a suitable Hohmann transfer orbit that will get you there. How long does the journey take? (Neglect the gravitational fields of the moon and the sun for this problem, approximate the lunar orbit by a circle and consider an ideal transfer orbit.)
