Tycho are you able to land at these new sites in 2016 and not turn over

I (sometimes) can, but very carefully. The Spider LM is top-heavy in Orbiter, so the slightest bit of lateral velocity will cause tipping, so I hover and use translational RCS to null that out. Cutting the hover engine at probe-length will cause tipping to, so thrust is necessary all the way down (though in real life, this would of course not be optimal as the thrust would destructively backfire into the engine bell). Sometimes, you just have to fly down to the ground and use scenario editor to stop the LM's motion and put it firmly on the ground.

Time for MSS-10 to come home, after a 2 month mission.

Undocking, yesterday morning:

What a warm welcome!

Almost back from where we started

Wheels stop! Almost over-run the runway, but still happy with it.

This might have been the final MSS missions as I want to completely transition to Orbiter 2016, and not all add-ons are support yet. This missions brought back almost all experiments, with only one Soyuz and Dragon mission on the manifest to bring back the rest.

Been awhile since I posted screenshots here. I recently found the NORAD tracking data for Mir and since then I've been having a ball simulating historic flights to the station.

The images from top to bottom are from STS-71, 74, 86, and 89.

Soyuz TM-2 and TM-3 at Mir.

I rotated the forward docking port for added realism, this required me having to do the same for Kristall (the model with one folded up array and the other one on Kvant-1) and the docking port on the side of the station that Kristall ends up docked to.

I have some more screenshots that I took in the course of flying shuttle missions. I like to use them as desktop wallpapers.

Discovery poised to deploy Magnum-1 on STS-51-C:

Challenger coming in to land on Rogers Dry Lake at the end of STS-61-A:

MSA launched Albatros II today. Albatros II is the brother of Albatros I, the first interplanetary mission tried by MSA, but lost a couple of months before arrival at Mars.

This is the second interplanetary mission done by MSA. It will validate landing sites for future manned missions, hopefully during the next window.
