Librarian’s Note: You know, I was just talking orbital mechanics at an NSS-NT outreach display at UTA with youngsters who were being encouraged by their parents to do well in math. One of the displays we have is a map of cislunar space, and I’ve created a tool to help illustrate the Lagrange points associated with the warps created by the interaction of the Earth and Moon’s gravity. This Educator Guide pointed to an absolutely brilliant video which illustrates the point quite well.
