The goal of this work is to study and find a space probe orbits around a triple asteroid system NEA named 2001 SN263. It means to find resonant orbits around the primary (Alpha) that cross the orbits of the other two bodies (Beta and gamma) are resonant with these two bodies, in order to be able to study all three bodies. The elliptical orbits around the primary which are in resonance with the orbits of the other two bodies are interesting because it allows the study of all organisms from a single orbit.
