RWB's NASA Space Shuttle Program (1978-2013)

With the retirement of the NASA Space Shuttle Program, I figured it wouldn't be a bad idea to do a little tribute to the significance of the program. Therefore, I give you my version of a NASA Space Program. Whats different? First off, the first test flight will occur in 1978 instead of 1981 and the program will end in 2013, adding five years to the program; also flights to Skylab, Mir, ISS, Tiangong 1, and a European Space Station will also take place. And more significantly missions such as the...

My Orbiter web page - vessels catalog

Posted 05-31-2011 at 02:50 PM by vchamp

One day I was planning a new mission and wanted to know which vessels are suitable for it. There is no centralized source of information about ships characteristics and abilities. At least I don't know such sources. So it was inconvenient to make the search in different docs.

After that I decided that making the vessels catalog is not a bad idea. It could be used as a reference when I need to know a vessel's weight, fuel mass, payload capacity, delta V, thrust, ISP, acceleration. Of...

The reason is a little pecularity of mine: I have two major areas of interest, Science Fiction and Fantasy. They don't go parallel, instead the focus shifts in not too regular intervals. And whenever I'm into the one, I am pretty disinterested...

Project Marathon

OK people, Project Marathon coming atcha!

Florida Keys Marathon Airport is a small airport, built in 1940 as a Navy airfield. It soon started commercial passenger flights, but only as a "flag stop", ie. a person would wave a big flag at passing planes from West Keys if there were passengers waiting to head to Miami.

As a small base, it's going to be a good starting point for a beginner like me, with lots of small and simple buildings, and a good opportunity...

[Mission 1- Tug launch] ---==--- a Tranzit tug, will be launched using the Energia and a DM2 tug, placing the Tranzit in a 400Km orbit, with plane close to the moon (RInc < 0.5*), it will then serve as the reference point for all other launches (Tug's designation is "z GASS"
