    Looks interesting.  Backed.

    The description on the Kickstarter page seemed sort of handwavey (I’m always skeptical of “chaos theory” being invoked as a solution for problems), but I dug up an actual research paper and the science does seem legit as far as I can tell, which isn’t very far. Chaos theory is definitely applicable, as orbital transfers are four-body (at least) problems which can’t be solved algebraically.
