Analysis of tube dynamics under two dimensions has been analyzed by Koon et al.2 However, analysis in three dimensions has not been done sufficiently. In this work, we discuss on designing Mars escape trajectory in the three-body system via invariant manifolds. In contrast with the conventional methods, we propose to use invariant manifolds from quasi-periodic invariant tori and investigate quasi-halo orbits and their associated tubes. Finally, we show how the invariant manifolds of quasi-periodic orbits can provide new escape trajectories from the Martian system in the circular restricted three-body problem.
