In the "SAL Dragon launch to HST" scenario the Crew Dragon capsule is not on the launchpad for me, but is located, together with its trunk, at 0N 0W. The Falcon 9 for it is standing all alone on LC-39A.

Super idea Don. Really like the SAL and mating it the the MPCV and using it at an asteroid and that works super. Might should have used a Falcon Heavy and had 1 launch. The Apollo guys learned that multiple launched cost too much. I think the Gateway guys should take heed of that as well. I too have the issue with the Falcon/Dragon 2 launch. NASA needs to keep the HST working for as long as it can. Not sure if JWST will ever open it's eye in space.
We are storing the trunk and solar panels and stuff for the Lunar Dragon here in TX. You might think about bringing that to life

I seemed to have read, that because of safety requirements, that Crew Dragon will probably never fly on the Heavy (with people anyway). And, I think the weight would be too much for just the Falcon9.


But, thanks for the comments.

Looking at this concept got me wondering about using a similar concept for Crew Dragon orbital lunar ops both using Falcon 9.

The launch scenario problem should now be fixed.


Replace the Dragon2 in the scenario with this if you don't want to re-download.


Code:
Dragon2:dragon2/dragon2_capsule
  STATUS Landed Earth
  POS -80.5771995 28.5619578
  HEADING 23.64
  ALT 0.952
  AROT 57.776 -18.826 8.898
  ATTACHED 0:0,Falcon9DRG
  AFCMODE 7
  PRPLEVEL 0:1.000000
  NAVFREQ 0 0
  HTCH 0 0.0000 0 0.0000 2 1.0000 0 0.0000
  PARA 2 1.0000 0.5000 0.0000 0.0000 3 1.0000 0.0000 1
  TRGT NULL 0 0 0 0 1 0 0
  PYLD 0 0 0.0000 0 0 0.0010 0 0.0 0.0000 0.0000
  BEAC 0 0 0
END

If you think about it. The Falcon heavy is launching 3 Falcon9's. Where this launches 2.

Don your right about the Lunar Dragon. It was so hard to get Falcon Heavy to work that the cost to man rate it wasn't worth the cost or time but still might make a good orbiter mission. We do have a " suggestion box" here and I have sent several ideas including a rover for the Red Dragon and a Talon Lander for the Moon which i was asked to give more info about that. There is talk about when the ISS is shutdown to use the Dragon to fly to Gateway but just talk. Is it still planned to shutdown the ISS in 2026 ?
I did rethink the Falcon Heavy and came to the same conclusion about just using 2 Falcon 9's you right about that

Thanks for the Dragon fix. Super job.

I've tried the launch scenario once it was fixed. I launched the Dragon and SAL at the same time, but they didn't end up in the same orbits. Same inclination, but different LANs. I guess you got that, too, because afterwards I read that the manual was suggesting to align the planes with the Falcon upper stage, so that you don't waste so much DV of the Dragon. I'll try that next time, then I can try to reach the HST as well.

Been thinking, of a CD launch with a FH launch duo! Moon mission perhaps ?

I think a lander version of the Dragon capsule would be pretty sweet. Certainly more doable now with VB!
