    Scenario Mars Approach - Phobos Flyby

    Here is a Mars approach scenario, intended for aerocapture, that contains an intentionally planned flyby of Phobos on approach. Have fun! Ps... The Phobos flyby velocity is so fast, it's recommended to reduce sim time to 0.1x as it gets close.

    I thought of that, but that's only giving me radial and tangential components, right? It total acceleration is unavailable anywhere, then how are folks doing precise braking maneuvers these days? "Back in the day" one of the methods we used involved monitoring the "distance remaining" and...

    Hi all, I've been with Orbiter since 2001-2005 and am getting back into the hobby. The new 2016 version is nothing short of amazing compared to the earlier versions. In earlier versions of Orbiter, the vessel's current acceleration was displayed in the upper left of the HUD along with the...
