Hi guys, it's been a while.
i had bit of a free time and seriously started to learn the AGC and the capsule layout for NASSP.
And I finally managed to launch a Saturn V rocket (here Apollo 7) with the 4 hours long pre-flight preparations and MCC.

I start to enjoy its complexity, even if I still don't fully understand what I'm clicking in the capsule (pressurisation, voltage, bus stuff etc).

Fly safe !

And here's the obligatory follow up showing HST firmly grappled by the RMS as seen from the "D" payload bay camera:

Decided to mess around more with old add ons and Multistage2015 and Spacecraft4. I discovered the joy of the Surveyor missions.





Often what I have to do with these is go in and overhaul the old .ini files, as the parameters are sometimes wrong and require the correct ones to be substituted. In the case of Surveyor, some of the vehicle masses were off and the thrusts of the lander engines and the retro rocket were reversed.

Zond 5, September 1968.





This is the first time I've flown this particular mission, I had to re-adapt this add on to use version 2.2 of Thorton's Proton Launcher in order to launch it. It's a shame that Zond never carried a human crew, though the hardware to pull off such a mission still exists (the Proton launch vehicle is still operational as of this post and the Zond was just a modified Soyuz).

If you have the money, you can fund such mission (and have a seat of course). Apply here :

Speaking of the moon, I decided to try a polar orbit recently. I wasn't disappointed with the view to say the least.

An early depiction of the Galileo spacecraft with the Centaur G-Prime stage, and my Galileo II in a similar fashion with the HES-5 stage.

From my archives, the Starfighter, the second Sagitta-class automatic spaceplane. The military one, complete with a new vehicle patch and the NATO flag.
