Niven base, Jules Verne crater, lunar far side

(Reuters) The general feeling at Niven was celebratory as myself and a few VIPís waited in a sheltered area outside the ATC dome in the minutes before the launch. The crews of Armstrong and the Enterprise had been aboard since last night. All nine domes of the base were opened and people lined the walkways to watch this historic event.

Niven base, Jules Verne crater, lunar far side


(Reuters) In the 30 years since the first commercial space agencies opened space and the creation of more powerful and efficient rocket engine designs and fuels; mankind has reached forth and begun the colonization of our nearest companion, the moon.

Orbiter - What Not To Do

Posted 02-27-2013 at 01:51 AM by Delta4

Exactly what the title says. I'll start it off.

1. Do NOT leave a DG-IV on safe mode and somehow nudge it off the pad. That disconnects the EPU and leaves the thing dead in the (metaphorical) water.

3. Don't try and use ISRUs as reentry vehicles. It's more like a Dutch oven.

That's all I've got for now, leave new entries at your leisure

Number One:
Standing on the landing pad.
Since instrument-flying is pretty much mandatory when landing vertically, your chances of survival aren't particularly high if you stand right on the pad.
