The Mission will involve astronauts going past the moon to the L2 point a free parking zone beyond he moon (already occupied by chinese moon mapping probe)
This is being set up as a supply point likely using the European ATV

Burns and his team have been collaborating with Lockheed Martin (builder of the Orion Multi-Purpose Crew Vehicle) for more than a year to plan an early Orion mission that would go into a halo orbit of EML-2 above the lunar far side.
