What is it about?

If at a libration collinear point to locate an orbital craft, which together with an electrostatic small body will generate an attractive potential electrostatic field, then this libration point will become an attracting center. In order for the small body to reach the vicinity of the libration point, it is necessary to control the electrostatic charge of the craft.The purpose of the paper is to create a control law of the electrostatic charge of the orbital craft, which irreversibly leads the small body in the vicinity of the collinear libration point.
