    Question DanSteph's Addons for 2016?

    Is there a current iteration of OrbiterSound, UMMU, and DGIV that works well with Orbiter 2016? The Sound works well for me but whenever I use the mp3 MFD it crashes, as well as running any UMMU and DGIV scenario. Is there a current version that I don't know about?

    Flight Question Catching up with ISS

    Yup, I got it figured out, I wonder why I didn't see it earlier, it's fairly obvious. Higher altitude = lower K.E. and lower velocity. I increased my apoapsis and then matched my periapsis to the ISS's altitude at the same point. Successfully rendezvoused, and completed my very first docking...

    Flight Question Atmospheric entry flames during DG launch

    Hey everyone, whenever I launch the DG to orbit I always get atmospheric entry flames during the ascent. How do I prevent this? Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk

    Flight Question Catching up with ISS

    Hey everyone, I'm relatively new to orbiter and I'm trying to rendezvous with the ISS on the classic DG. I've already aligned planes and am beginning the rendezvous stage, which begins with catching up with the ISS. I heard that the best method is to warp speed and let a few orbits pass until...

    Book recommendations: space exploration history

    Space exploration history? Read "Breaking the Chains of Gravity" by Amy Shira Teitel. It tells of NASA's origin starting with the Germans. Sent from my SM-G7102 using Tapatalk

    Passion for aviation

    I'm not exactly forcing myself; it is just that I would like to obtain a Bachelor's in aerospace engineering so I would have to learn about both air and space vehicles. I figured that it would be a bonus if I could get myself more interested in aircraft. For the record, right now I am slightly...

    Passion for aviation

    Hi, I have been a lifelong spaceflight nerd and I would like to start an interest in aviation and airplanes, but I couldn't get myself as interested in it as I am with space vehicles. However, I think whatever flies looks pretty cool. Could anyone help me become more interested in the field of...

    Idea Interstellar Addon

    With all the hubbub surrounding the Interstellar movie last year, I found the planetary system as an add-on here: Interstellar System But then I suggest making an add-on based on the Endurance mission itself and not only the system. An idea of the spacecraft used could be viewed here...

    High school math.

    Hey guys, I am willing to be an astronautical engineer, and I know I need a solid background in physics, chemistry, and math. I'm in 10th grade and about to end the 1st term with a crap score. take two types of math, extended (required for everyone), and Additional math, which is more difficult...

    Any astronautics engineers around here?

    My school does not offer separate math subjects like calculus or trigonometry, but instead we have "additional math" and I'm gonna learn topics related to calculus this year. So currently the subjects I take are: physics and chemistry (physics mandatory for my whole class but the other sciences...
