Manned Waypoint Near Lunar Farside
Artist's concept of astronauts in an Orion capsule helping direct robotic teleoperations on the moon's farside.
Centaur Boosting Orion to the Moon
In one proposal for a trip to the L2 point, Orion capsule would be launched to Low Earth Orbit on a rocket such as a Delta IV Heavy or Ares I. Then, a modified Centaur upper stage would launch on a separate rocket. Orion would dock to the Centaur stage in orbit, and the Centaur would boost Orion towards the Moon.
Mission to the Farside of the Moon
