Summary:
What is the delta-v requirements from each of the Earth-Moon lagrange points to landing on the lunar surface?
What is the delta-v requirements from each of the Earth-Moon lagrange points to landing on the lunar surface?

What would be the best software I could use to visualise and calculate that kind of thing?

Thanks.

What research have you done on this so far? What have you found?

I have found delta-v maps but none of them include Lagrange points.
I have no idea how to calculate it. Any calculations I see are for orbits, which a lagrange point is not an orbit right?
I'm not sure if (or which) simulators include lagrange points either.
I will try Kerbal I guess..

I am happy to work it out I just dont know where to start.

Ah Kerbal doesn't model for Lagrange points :frown:

If I put your subject line "Delta-v from Lagrange points to lunar surface?" into google I get this which has many delta-v maps that includes Lagrange points.

You might see "projectrho" popping up a lot in that search, that is the "Atomic Rockets" resource for SciFi writers and game designers who wants to get the science right. There is a ton of good stuff in there, for instance the collection of delta-v maps for mission planning.

It does if you add the Principia mod.
