starship-design: a minor queston
Whenever i see references to building colonies at the earth-moon
lagrangian points, they always seem to refer to "L5" as opposed to the
other stable point L4. is there a reason for this? is one more stable
than the other? does one of them offer better asteroid protection
(trailing behind the moon, albiet by 60°) are there other advantages?
or is this just one of those things...
