  • Hello again Oceanic. I downloaded your DG4 reentry tutorial and found it answered most of the questions I had except 4. Why sync the base to 14.5km instead of 2km? Also, do you always do the base sync 90 deg before the base regardless of the height of the orbit? Do you have nonspherical gravity and gravitional torque checked in the parameters tab? And what is nonspherical gravity and gravational torque? I am assuming for now that nonspherical gravity means that the density of the earth and other bodies is not distributed evenly and gravitional torque means that gravity pulls on the spacecraft unevenly. Am I close and if not where might I read up on those topics.
