I think we should have a dedicated Astrologer for that on OF. It would be most fitting!

The oldest version on Orbithangar is 010503 which means that Orbiter is a Taurus.

But what is its ascendant? (And remember, Orbiter is left-handed barycentric and western astrology is geocentric with undetermined handedness)

A former girlfriend was deeply convinced of it, which made our relationship at times a bit conflicted.

Especially that I did not even know my ascendant was an anomaly.

I know enough about it to know that most modern astrologers suck badly. When I read a horoscope and don't like it, I just read another one.

BTW, as some kind of Request for comments: What about using Google Draco for compressing mesh data?

Ok, Wikipedia says:
"The ascendant, or rising sign, is the zodiacal sign and degree that was ascending on the eastern horizon at the specific time and location of an event."

So I determined the MJD of 2001-05-03, then went to Habana spaceport, which - as far as I remember - was the first spaceport in Orbiter.

The difficult part is at what time Orbiter came into existence? So I put the Delta Glider on the tarmac and looked East, until the sun came up over the horizon. I'd say it is a good time to start at sunrise. The zodiac sign on the horizon at this time was Aries, which should be Orbiter's ascendant, if the assumptions above are correct.
( MJD = 52032,45833 )

Humans have the same problem if you think about it.

Light a few boosters and say a few and we'll be fine.
