Özet

Effects of general relativity on the motion of a spacecraft moving on a particular trajectory around Earth is investigated numerically in the context of circular restricted three body problem. It is seen that the general relativistic effects are worth to be included in the calculations, since they are observable to the Earth based observation devices terrestrial or spaceborne after a reasonable period. Even the effects of frame-dragging of rotating Earth can be detected by the current devices.)
