    Question Spacex Dragon ISS icon ...

    I have noticed on recent images of the Spacex Dragon capsule that they have been painting a blue ISS icon beside the door for each visit of the capsule to the ISS. I have been unable to locate a decent image of the icon alone to use on capsule liveries. Can anyone point me in the right...

    Need to calculate orbital elements for six spacecraft ...

    Here is a challenge and one which challenges my very limited abilities in orbital calculation. I plan a solar orbit at 1.6 AU from the sun. There will be six co-orbital spacecraft in this orbit at equidistant points beginning at the first point of Ares. What will be, or how will I determine...

    Annie Glenn passes 19 May 2020 ...

    Didn't want this to pass without notice. We don't seem to pay much attention to the families of the men that pioneered manned space flight, but they were the greatest support to the men that flew. On the 19 May 2020, Annie Glenn, widow of John Glenn passed away, aged 100, due to complications...

    Question A question about ice on Mars ...

    In the latest offering from MRO, https://www.uahirise.org/ESP_062853_2355 the article speaks of escarpments that face both Martian poles that expose 100m thick of exposed almost pure water ice. Since most ice that is exposed on Mars sublimates in very short order, how do these escarpments...

    Question Mouse click not recognized in orbiter_ng ..

    I might have put this in the wrong place earlier, so I'll try here. I'll preface this with everything works fine in basic Orbiter. When I am setting up a session in orbiter-ng my mouse works fine. When I launch the mouse will respond to movement but mouse click on any selection is not...

    Launch News SpaceX CRS-18

    Great Launch and booster landing!! I just can't get enough of watching any launch no matter how mundane they seem to be becoming. Kind of surprised there was no other commentary but mine. Still, great shot SpaceX.

    Problem Boosters not sitting vertical in Orbiter 2016

    I usually don't try to fly unmanned boosters, but decided to give it a shot. I had chosen to try to fly a Delta IV Heavy out of Vandenberg. When I first loaded the applicable addons and scenarios, I noticed that the booster was actually sitting below the surface at a considerable angle from...

    Mars Bases ...

    Hi all. I'm compiling a list of all Mars bases that have been prepared for Orbiter since day one, and pinpointing their locations on Google Earth Pro. So far I have Olympus, Sheffield (my own, not yet published), Orcus Patera and New Rome. I will be looking at any in OH that I can find. If...

    Orbiter Lua help file ...

    Is it possible to just split out the Lua portion of the Orbiter Help file for printing or might someone have a copy of it already for that it can be printed and used as a partial manual itself? If you do have it, could you send me a copy, or illuminate me in how to extract it for myself...

    Software Using VS Code ... not an Orbiter thread ...

    Hi guys. I recently installed Anaconda3 for a bit of Python work and to familiarize myself with it. After the usual installation headaches, it also loaded in Visual Studio Code. I know VS Code is primarily an editor and similar functions often take similar forms. My question is, do any of you...
