    Advanced Question Lunar space station with very low Rinc

    low R-inc compared to what? the earth? just go from your target earth orbit inclination to lunar orbit with as little plane-change as possible and you're there... will probably end up close to a perfect prograde/retrograde orbit

    Gaming O-F Dwarf Fortress Succession Game: Armorwad - Minotaurs! Goblins! Railguns!

    just got the hang of the basic controls and fortress management, at least enough to know that i need to really bring some livestock when i try to start... and woodcutters arent any use without axes (my bad...) was anyone else amazed by the sheer depth of simulation here? each dwarf is...

    General Question Reducing the eccentricity of an orbit

    ok, with a little thought into the shape of an orbit, you can work out that perfectly circular orbit must have equal highest and lowest points (apoapsis and perapis respectivley), which means that your PeA and ApA should be the same, give or take your own margin of error. 10km is pretty good for...

    Updates SpaceShipTwo to begin powered flights by end of year!

    remind me, are they planning to get beyond suborbital flight? or will this still be an hour long scenic flight for the "astronauts"

    Scenario Scenario Editing?

    you shouldn't bother CREATING scenarios, just load one thats already made, then delete any vessels you dont want in the scenario editor, as sorindafabico said, Press [CTRL]+[F4], select "Scenario Editor", then click "next"* (i think it says next anyway) than you can select the vessels in the...

    wouldnt a swimming machine require some sort of centrifuge to keep the water from wandering off around the whole habitable volume of the ISS?

    New Release Interplanetary Modular Spacecraft RC9

    ive recently been having a little trouble finding how to fit enough solar panel space into one truss module, like the ISS P4-6 and S4-6 but since finding this video, i can begin to understand exactly what we can do with a modern solar panel, IE how tightly they can fold it up (note how small...

    New Release Interplanetary Modular Spacecraft RC9

    If you use a separate mesh when intergrated, how do you know which docking interfaces to remove? Consider a 6 way node, it is possible to have an integrated mesh only hiding one docking interface, but any 5 interfaces could be hidden, so which do we delete? The only reliable way to make this...

    id say that Sean also makes a pretty good ex-SAS-"criminal" in "The Rock", certainly has the right persona for some of those jokes!

    New Release Interplanetary Modular Spacecraft RC9

    well CMGs would certainly make station attitude easier to keep. and an autopilot that could hold sun-relative attitude would also be priceless. im now done with inanimate trusses, now i'm onto some moving parts, might start with some lovely solar panels... right after i work out some station...

    New Release Interplanetary Modular Spacecraft RC9

    ive onyl matched the attachment port sizes (like those on greg's truss modules), but the actual docking ports (his version of CBM if you will) doesnt match mine at all, my CBM design is almost exactly between his smal and large rings, but still, its nothing that the extra added docking adapter...
