    Question Amount of sleep

    The longest I have ever gone is only 24 hours. I do this, and then the next day I drop dead at about 3pm and alarm clocks have no effect on me. In Engineering school you don't sleep a lot. I would rather not sleep because I'm trying to land on Mars, than because I'm solving some complex integral...

    Project Moonwalk video game

    I actually think its pretty cool. Okay so its not as realistic as Orbiter, but it will get kids and people who are less technically inclined interested in space. Then after they get tired of its arcade like atmosphere, they might try Orbiter. Its a good thing. Personally I'm going to try it.

    Question Help creating a Signal on Matlab

    Are you a fellow Electrical Engineer? I never had to make anything that complicated, but I can give it a shot. I will fire up Matlab later. Here is something to try for now. This will create a square impulse from 0 to 5. You can change it to move it to the locations in your plot. n = -5 : 1...

    Martin Schweiger Interviewed!!

    Dr. Martin never ceases to amaze me. I was absent from the community for 3 months, I come back and Orbiter 2010 came out. Wow. He doesn't have to do what he does you know, he doesn't get a cent for it. Its art for art's sake.

    RC DeltaGliderIV project

    Wow that looks amazing dude. :thumbup: Can't wait to see it fly. You got some talent I must say. Can you please resize your future photos to like 1024x768 though. These are way too huge and take a while to load. None of the quality is lost if you resize them. Thanks.

    You know you're addicted to Orbiter when...

    When you waste hours trying to figure out how to get to the moon in Nassp instead of doing your homework. When you finally get to the moon, see it in all its pixelated glory, and go showing your friends who couldn't care less." When the words, space, planet, spaceship, space time continuum...
