Remeinds of the Ranger from interstellar.

Maybe a thread for sts payloads?
I think I have this: EURECA used in sts 46 and 57?

I need to redo the Eureca.

I need to shorten the height and make her a bit wider.
What is a bit odd is there seems to be 2 rods for payload bay?

when clearly only one in the yellow structure?

As far as animation goes there is a arm that rotates out above the solar panels. I have seen drawing that show a antenna dish on the bottom.

So the boom at satellite go up 40 ft. When released the sat on a tether would out 12.5 miles. The real one had thruster to move the satellite. This one will just go out. I hope to do via attachment and scaling of the tether. The sat will be a vessel attached to the tether. Then the antenna boom can be extended

Thanks. I will look at that.
I noticed the Eureca has 2 gold bars one on each side.

I added another arm. They look like they extend to the front. But on one side there is structure that would block that?

Not sure about the bottom of the panels they look yellow?

So this is the payload bay door issue:

the proc is 1.00 so the door should be open?

Redid the mpess. So now we get STS57 with redone Euceka solar panels

and sts 46 setup.

STS46. I can seem to get the Tether mfd to work. The TSS is attached to the boom so that it can move up and down. I may need to make another child attachment so the tether can attach and then release the TSS

I wanted to point out that TSS package sits on the pallet (like on STS-51A satellite retrieval and some other missions). It is obscured, but some parts can be seen underneath.

Thanks. Yes it is on a pallet. But it is covered except for the top piece. Should it be different?

I see. so the pallet front should be seen and not covered?
