Re: Lanrangian points




- The Lagrangian points L1, L2, L3 are not stable. A satellite positioned
there would require constant positions corrections: complex satellite. L4
and L5 are stable.

- When n L points are populated and you want to populate another L point,
you have to solve an (n+2)-body problem. This becomes extremely complex.
 
- L4 and L5 are about the same distance from Earth as the moon: EME type
complications for communications.

Hello Amsat'ers
Is it possible or practical to have a communications satellite at the L1 or
L2 points.
