Sadly, this is typical of reporting on this stuff:
…astronauts likely won’t head straight to a space rock when SLS and Orion are ready to fly together in 2021. In the last year, word has begun leaking out that NASA wants to explore Earth-moon L2, a point in space that lies beyond the moon’s far side, as a precursor.
…Exploration of Earth-moon L2 could get started as early as 2021 with the first manned flight of SLS and Orion, which NASA calls Exploration Mission 2.
Emphasis mine. I don’t think that word means what you think it means.
And the comments over there are generally stupid, as usual, including a NASA-faked-the-moon-landing type.
