    Buzz Aldrin's doctorial thesis

    Does anyone know what was contained on pg.69 in Buzz Aldrin's doctoral thesis? He uses two variables, b and k, for the remainder of the thesis, and I think that the definition of these two variables are on the missing page. I have a hard time buying MIT's statement that this page is missing...

    Idea MESSENGER Scenario Pack

    Just gauging the potential interest of a scenario pack for the spacecraft currently in route to Mercury. I've been tinkering with it for a month now, and just have it as far as LEO. Perhaps before March 11, 2011, I'll have a scenario for MOI (Mercury Orbit Insertion) to finish the pack.
