ISA - A Little History

When I first started playing orbiter I felt a need to keep track of my missions, to keep track of what I was using and to give it some context. to that end I decided to form a single person VSA and so ISA was born.

The name comes from a Star Trek Voyager episode and I liked the idea of an International VSA because it opens up a lot of options with various countries space hardware and missions. It helps make it all nicely open-ended.

Since that time I have expanded ISA...

Another Edition of "The Cosmic Ray" by Steen Tourani

Rumors, Rumors, and More Rumors
The Public Story
As many of you know, the company Nae Technologies hasn't been active in quite some time. The planned launcher never surfaced, and many of the members quit. As Nae Technologies' stocks plunged, the CEO, Ted Hantvi, stated that, "he would stick with the company until it died." When the company eventually did die...nothing.

I am so going to relax drink an ice cold adult beverage ;) and devote all my time to getting the server configured and loose ends tied up. I didnt know it but there is that little check box in orbiter video setup that alows to enumerate devices. Duh! I did this and orbiter looks great running on server. So ill get with axertan and get wideawake live on webpage hopefully among other things!

OMP Server gets a upgrade

Posted 01-19-2011 at 06:49 AM by deltawing777

The OMP server has gone dual-core. 1.8 ghz. 4 gigs of ram. Now maybe I can run a orbiter2010 client on the server itself for stationary objects and a second testing server.

HIP 13044 b - The first planet from another galaxy

Posted 01-17-2011 at 10:22 AM by hiacom

HIP 13044 b is officially the first planet discovered from outside our own galaxy. the gaseous and very hot planet spins very fast and orbits a dying star which is at the edge of Milky Way. The planet is a little bit bigger than Jupiter and is 2000 light years away from Earth.

For me personally, this is very exciting and it shows that we have gone a long way in discovering new planets this past decade. I hope that the trend only continues.
