June 9th 2012, 21:47 zulu time, the Energia launcher lifted off with the Cassiopee core module for the new space station TSS. Lift off was from Sumatra Island, Indonesia at SRC Polygon Base. The base's location is approximately 1.2 degrees N of the equator.

The plan for the station is to be leased to various nations/companies. Initial plans are for the station to support a crew of 3. In the future, further expansion will be possible.

Mission 1 put the core module...

TSA (Therius Space Agency) is in business!

Posted 06-17-2012 at 03:15 AM by Therius

Therius Space Agency was formed to provide low cost space travel and access to orbital lab facilities to the private sector. The agency is a private venture only. You can read about it's missions in this blog.

A space station will be constructed and maintained by TSA for rental as a whole or per module to any nation/company. The station will start out small, but it will grow larger if there is enough demand. Other options are to use short term ATV or Viking modules that can be...

A remarkable achievement (and a nice DG tale!)

Well, here's something that I don't think most of you have done:
A full reentry: from deorbit, through EI, to constant drag to the HAC and a perfect landing.
There's a catch to it however: all unpowered (except the deorbit burn of course!) and WITHOUT ADDON MFDS >>AT ALL!<<
Have you ever done that? Well I don't wanna be rude, but I don't think you have (;

Never have I used external MFDs, especially for reentries for 2 reasons:
1) I dislike them...

On developing my first addon...

Posted 10-14-2011 at 07:16 PM by MaverickSawyer

I have been experimenting with a variety of different addons as of late. One of the latest was the excellent HARP addon. I tried (without sucess) to fire the HARP cannon from the back of the AR-18, using the docking bay as ammo storage. After much consternation and multiple CTDs, I gave up on the cannon, and began to focus on the possibility of using the AR-18 as a "rods from God" bomber.
End analysis: concept proven.
However, the Martlet rounds are less than ideal for this...

The XR2 Umbrella Corp. Skin inspired me to give my own little project going. I am new to Orbiter and I think my best flight was from Earth to Jupiter (I only used the warp-drive, no TransX or escapes; still learning :p).

This project I wanna do is entirely gonna be Umbrella based from editing skins, flightsuits, space stations, outposts, orbiting fuel crafts, and planetary space stations on 2-4 parts of a planet.

I think my first project will be easy since I literally...
