Orbits around Lagrange Points as Space Highways

Talked to a CalTech mathematician who told me he was working on highly robust methods for calculating “Lagrange points” and their associated orbits. See the NASA page for more info. Apparently orbits around these Lagrange points can be used as a kind of space highway! He is working on a project which will use these highways to get stuff to the moon easily, from which it can be launched to Mars or elsewhere.
