What Does it Take to Capture an Asteroid? A Case Study on Capturing Asteroid 2006 RH120

Abstract
The population of temporarily captured asteroids offers attractive candidates for asteroid retrieval missions. Once captured, these asteroids have lifetimes ranging from a few months up to several years in the vicinity of the Earth. One could potentially extend the duration of such temporary capture phases by acting upon the asteroid with slow deflection techniques. In this paper we present a case study on asteroid 2006 RH120, which is the single known member of this category, and study what it would have taken, in terms of thrust level and total delta-V, to prolong its temporary capture phase.
