    Trans-lunar injection

    A Trans Lunar Injection (TLI) is a propulsive maneuver used to set a spacecraft on a trajectory which will cause it to arrive at the Moon. Typical lunar transfer trajectories approximate Hohmann transfers, although low energy transfers have also been used in some cases, as with the Hiten probe. For short duration missions without significant perturbations from sources outside the Earth-Moon system, a fast Hohmann transfer is typically more practical.
