When a spacecraft travels from Earth to the Moon, the gravitational force from Earth initially opposes this journey. Eventually, the spacecraft reaches a point where the Moon's gravitational attraction overcomes the Earth's gravity. How far from Earth must the spacecraft be for the gravitational forces from the Moon and Earth to just cancel?
