    My apologies -- I must have been asleep!  Of course each two-body system has
    Lagrange points and I was focused on the Earth-Sun system since it has the
    most currently used satellites in those positions (well, at least L1!) as
    well as currently proposed missions.
    Would Earth-Moon L1, L2 or L3 points be stable enough for long-term
    missions?  Of course L4 and L5 are (L5 was proposed position for a future
    Space Station as everyone knows!)
    Thanks Tony B. and Antonin V. for the correction!
