    An important note to commenters This thread deals with the space program of the People's Republic of China (PRC) only. If you want to discuss the Formosat program run by the Republic of China (ROC; Taiwan), do this at...

    OHM Vostok v1.1 (for external graphic clients)

    When I tried to fly Vostok 2, I could not realise the meanings of the Яцssiап labels in the cockpit. I would have to learn Яцssiап so that I would not have any problems on flying Vostok 2–6.

    News 60th anniversary of Gagarin's flight and 40th anniversary of STS-1

    Yeah, it is true. But I wanted to say that Vostok 1 was technologically inferior to the Mercury capsule, where John Glenn landed with the capsule after an orbital flight. Returning while remaining inside the capsule is obviously safer than returning while remaining outside the capsule.

    Updates Blue Origin New Shepard News and Updates

    I am quite unfamiliar with Blue Origin, but I want to say that New Shepard is a useless waste of money. It is flown more than 10 times with no crewed mission. It will never boost space tourism if it does not have any crewed flight, no matter how expensive it will be. I will be happy if BO fly...

    News 60th anniversary of Gagarin's flight and 40th anniversary of STS-1

    Again, we came to know about Yuri's ejection in 1991, and he had to say some lies to the press to keep this secret. As I said in my "communism, socialism and secrecy" thread, the Soviets publicised their successes and hid their failures till 1991, when all the hidden failures were declassified...

    Updates SLS Updates

    Ah, the long-awaited testing is finally complete! Will Orion open its wings to the Moon in 2022? Will Americans return to the lunar surface in the 60th anniversary of Apollo 8 in 2028? Damn, I tend not to focus on these schedules since 2020.

    News COVID-19 pandemic

    Thank you. We have to follow all the measures to completely prevent COVID-19. While I will follow most of the measures, I may not follow the vaccination measure, since the vaccination program is waning in India. 😢

    News 60th anniversary of Gagarin's flight and 40th anniversary of STS-1

    One thing I would like to say that unlike modern space capsules, Vostok 1 did not land with the cosmonaut. Yuri ejected from the spacecraft after re-entry. This is one of the truths of Soviet space program that was hidden from us for three decades. It was 1991 when we came to know about these...

    News 60th anniversary of Gagarin's flight and 40th anniversary of STS-1

    On this day, 60 years ago, Yuri Gagarin flew to space with his Vostok 1 spacecraft. After completing one orbit, he became the first man to go to space. Today is the 60th anniversary of his daring flight, and Russia is proud of him. There are several places named after Yuri Gagarin. Quoting...

    OHM Sunnyvale STS Missions

    It is not designed for 2016, since it requires Shuttle Fleet 4.8 (incompatible with 2016). Staffs should not be idle in this situation.

    Obiter vs Reentry

    You're right. I don't quite understand what the "Art against Science" means. I thought it means that realism is like unscientific aesthetics.

    New Release "Artemis 8" using Dragon

    I often believe that human-rated Falcon Heavy is impossible because the rocket is too shaky to be safe for human. But anyway, nice add-on.

    Obiter vs Reentry

    I would like to create a list of real-life aircraft add-ons working with 2016. I generally like to live and die with science, and don't care much about aesthetics. Therefore, immersion is better than realism IMO.
