Orbital maintenance platform rendezvous with booster
An orbital maintenance platform (OMP) approaches 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 booster is 40 feet long, 17 feet in diameter and employs a single liquid-propellant rocket engine.
