(277810) 2006 FV35 is a small near-Earth asteroid in the Apollo asteroid family. It is a quasi-satellite of Earth.[4] It is also notable for having a low delta-v requirement for rendezvous.[3] Although its orbital period is almost exactly 1 year, the orbit of (277810) 2006 FV35 has a high eccentricity which causes it to cross the paths of both Venus and Mars.

Transfer energy[edit]

With a semi-major axis of almost exactly 1 AU, (277810) 2006 FV35 has a relatively low transfer energy from Earth. The delta-v required to transfer to the asteroid varies between 11 and 13 km/s; this change in delta-v oscillates over an approximately 200-year period with the current transfer cost near its maximum of 13 km/s.[3]
