Which among the Earth-Moon Lagrange points (EML1, EML2, EML3, EML4, EML5) is best for a permanent space settlement which requires materials from the moon for construction?
Some say it's EML4 for offering stability, while others propose EML1 because any object can reach the settlement from the Moon within hours or in a day at most.
Which Lagrange point supports good communication?
Which Lagrange point can offer better movement to the Moon?
Is there any other orbit that can be better than EML points for positioning the settlement, such as a lunar orbit? If so, can you provide specifications, please?
Edit: The settlement will not depend on Earth resources.. but it will depend on lunar resources for construction only. After construction, it is independent... i.e. without depending on the Earth or lunar resources. By better, I mean... which is a more potential orbit to make sure things from the Moon can reach early and safely to the settlement and a stable orbit. Thanks a lot!
