Abstract
Explicit formulas are given for the probability of occurrence of at least six successful r-day microgravityexperiments per year onboard the Space Station for a given annual expected number of collision avoidance maneuvers, where r is a parameter in the range 23 —30. Results indicate an 88% probability for 30-day experiments and a 99% probability for 25-day experiments for an expected annual maneuver rate of 8.
