Penumbra Station

In that case, "obviously" some kind of active control would be needed (momentum wheels? coupling to an external magnetic field?). I'd be concerned that the energy needed for that might, in some cases (depending, for example, on the mass of the satellite, its distance from the primary, etc), exceed the external energy supply.
