Thank you for clear description of Lagrange points.
I'm now enlightened and you have given me an understanding gravitational topology and its amazing usefulness to space exploration. Not to dismiss the dangers of random large space objects being 'funnelled' dangerously toward us and the possibility of cleverly 'bumping' them into a stationery position to mine their valuable mineral content. Mathematics is wonderful. Thanks also to the brilliance of Lagrange.
