It's our mission that doesn't make sense, sir.
The station is moved away from Earth because its gravity is having an effect. The only effect it could have is a tidal effect, and this seems unlikely given its relatively small size compared to the moon. Putting it into an orbit round the moon would be an easy fix since the combined mass would be only negligibly larger. Another easy fix would be to move to a new location at the L2 or L3 Lagrange points (L2=behind the moon, L3=opposite the Earth [behind the sun]) and drop a satellite at the L3 or L4 points to retain contact with Earth. (The Lagrange points are where gravity effects cancel each other out in a 2 body system [Earth/Moon, Sun/planet, etc])
