Messierhunter, I've always wanted to do that.

Back again! In this week's episode we start off at our ressurected Mir space station in lunar orbit and we fly the stock DeltaGlider down to Brighton Beach!

From now on when I track a launch I'm going to take a screenshot of my GPS location on my phone for later comparison to Orbiter. I did that with the CRS-10 launch, but it was so cloudy that I only saw the first few and the last few seconds of the launch/landing, so there's not much to compare it to. It's still useful for showing a comparison of the sonic boom timing with the landing, which I'm currently working on. Hopefully the next daytime LZ1 landing is on a perfectly clear day so that I can track it with the scope from launch to landing.

Another one! Today we leave the DG behind and jump in the ShuttleA for a quick local flight at Brighton Beach, followed by an ascent, alignment, and sync for getting back to Moon Mir!

Not entirely Orbiter, but Orbiter and the excellent Falcon9R V1.2 and telescope MFD mods did play a vital role in allowing me to approximate the timing of the sonic booms from the last Falcon 9 landing:

This video shows the Apollo 15 lunar landing, flown with NASSP 8.0 Alpha in Orbiter 2016. As always the Virtual AGC is used, running the Luminary 1E software, which was flown in the Lunar Module computer (LGC) of Apollo 15 to 17. As in my previous Apollo 11 video the whole process from Powered Descent Initiaton to post-landing is shown, this time also with some annotations.

Highlights of this video are the amazing terrain, the Montes Apenninus, the Mons Hadley massif and the LM flying directly over Mons Hadley Delta. During the landing Hadley Rille can bee seen in the background. Highlight in terms of NASSP development is certainly to see Luminary 1E (specific version number Luminary 210) working. Luminary 1E can use a terrain model to translate the landing radar measurements to state vector updates and by flying over the 11,000 feet Mons Hadley Delta this terrain model is certainly necessary. Luminary 1E is one of the new LGC versions that became available for the Virtual AGC project through the LGC developer Don Eyles, who had a bunch of these 1700 pages listings in his private collection.

Also for the first time the Rate-of-Descent (ROD) mode, Program 66, is demonstrated. This mode was used for all actual lunar landings. It's a computer assisted mode, with a switch used to control the descent rate, which the computer then translates into throttle commands for the Descent Propulsion System (DPS). When no joystick inputs are done then the LM is in attitude hold in the ROD mode. The astronauts also could have performed a fully automatic landing with the computer or a fully manual landing.

In case you missed it, here is the latest in my Earth to Mars series that is coming to a close. Enjoy this one. Exciting (hopefully) finale coming soon!

Lagrange MFD 1.0 LEO to E-M L1

Please watch with captions on. I decided to get rid of the mic recording because the quality was crappy.
