Orbital maintenance platform docks with booster

An orbital maintenance platform (OMP) docks with an orbiting booster in low Earth orbit. Once connected the booster will loft the OMP to a gravitationally stable Lagrangian point about 700 thousand miles beyond the orbit of the Earth's Moon. This mobile spacecraft system will have a total length of 110 feet with a maximum diameter of 18 feet.
