Sample Near-Rectilinear Halo Orbits (NHROs)
Filed under human spaceflight
An NHRO would enable a cislunar space station to save propellant for orbital corrections and avoid the blocking of sunlight by the Moon from reaching the station’s solar panels, while always keeping the spacecraft within a line of sight to ground controllers on Earth.
