De-orbiting of space debris by means of a towing cable and a single thruster spaceship: whiplash and tail wagging effects

Abstract : This papers exposes two difficulties that are likely to take place during the towing of a space debris. These effects, which could trouble de-orbitation strategies, are visible on simple simulations based on a model of coupled rigid-bodies dynamics. We name them tail wagging and whiplash effects, respectively.
