Orbiter Galaxy searches for a colaborator

The after-release fuss is dying down, most serious troubles seem to be fixed, only one update to version 0.6 is left to finish, and that not too big either. There will probably be another update on 0.6 once a new Orulex version comes out, which will be on tuesday, for all I know.

I am pleased that Orbiter Galaxy has managed to give birth to its first offspring at such an early stage that I hope will come in handy for other add-on developers, see .

Now that everything...

ME-3 back home
ME-3 is back home after a 2 weeks mission to the MSSEU. They've attached 2 trusses for for the solar panels to be added on. The whole mission went smooth, except of a laptop crash occurred 9 days into the mission. After an image back-up, the system was ready for use again.

FSATGMADOE lost their two remaining Soyuz FG rockets late last night when a fire abrubptly started inside their main hangar.

Pictures and detailed information are being withheld until FSATGMADOE completes their investigation of the accident.

Nobody was killed but one man was injured when he tripped on a piece of rubble the day later.
