    Launch News Final Ariane 5 launch - VA261 - Heinrich-Hertz-Satellit & SYRACUSE 4B

    This feels a bit weird to me. My first attempt at 3D-modeling was an extremely simple model of SYLDA.

    Problem I Cannot Rendezvous the ISS

    Capt. Obvious here. Launching realistic craft requires precision, because the margins are small compared to sci-fi craft. The most important thing is to launch into the correct plane. (RInc close to zero) Secondly, you can use time instead fuel to reach the intercept point. Plan for small burns...

    Scenario Create new scenario around Moon

    Lunar DRO IS a 3-body orbit with the Sun as the major contribitor. IIRC Scott Manley made a video explaining it fairly well. PS: If you set up an orbit around the Earth at the same altitude as the Moon, but 180 deg. from it, you will also find that the Sun is the major contribitor. You can...

    Request Calculator MFD

    (y) Does Equation MFD still work? IIRC it does basic arithmetic too. A bit "clunky" but powerful tool.

    Gaming New Microsoft Flight Simulator?

    The tutorial stopped working for me at the same point. My local airport is MIA. I'm just lurking until it runs a bit smoother. Too busy at work ATM. Knife-edge taxi?

    Gaming New Microsoft Flight Simulator?

    I put the initial 1G download in my 'regular' Steam location on D: but I never got the option to select any location for MSFS2020. Now my 222G ssd C: is down to 48G, but it works relatively well for a brand new game at this size. PS: When the 91G download was finished, Steam goes: "You have...

    I must be too tired. First time I glanced at the headline I read it as: "... for saving home from wildlife" and I went "Woah! Brian May has changed". :facepalm:

    I'm guessing that the nudist/boars ratio is not a thing in the UK? ... or maybe an irrational number? :lol:

    Average distance between objects on Keplerian orbits.

    What about the plane(s)? A RInc other than zero would not help.

    Most COVID-19 fatalities are patients with compromised respiratory system. How many of them would be smokers? Statistics is a tool, NOT a solution! :facepalm:

    Launch News SpaceX DM-2 Launch Scheduled for May 27!

    Jolly good show, Elon. Congratulations. PS: It looked like a very smooth ride. Can't wait to see the recordings from the capsule. ---------- Post added at 08:57 PM ---------- Previous post was at 08:55 PM ---------- I was thinking the exact same thing except about the first stage. :rofl:

    Question Recording of YOUR voice for the incoming OrbiterSound 5.0

    My :2cents: Truly realistic sounds would be "boring" or maybe infuriating if you think about the constant humming of equipment. I would prefer taking sort of a "cinematic" approach and use a dampened thud followed by actuator sounds. For undocking you could use actuators and a dampened...

    News COVID-19 pandemic

    If people knew how many ways 3x400V electrical power can hurt you, they would be more careful in their daily life. And we can go on forever like that. I'm not that interested in "corner cases", but safety is similar to comfort temperature. If you can get 40% of people to agree on the correct...

    I wonder if someone local is lurking on this forum. :lol: The data has been updated. It was probably some issues in collecting the data. In small cohorts any error can skew the results quite badly. We're now down to 11 active cases. ---------- Post added at...
