Special Note: More current information may be available at Plan-it Purple

A number of space missions have recently been proposed that aim to take advantage of the growing scientific interest in the regions of space near the libration points in the Sun - Earth/Moon system. The renewed interest in the Moon has also heightened activity in projects that involve transfers from Earth-Moon to Sun-Earth libration points. However, accomplishment of many short- and long-term science and exploration goals require innovative spacecraft trajectory concepts, which, in turn, implies that more efficient design techniques for analysis and new philosophies for design must be considered
