Sign me up, I'm looking to start a commercial interest that runs parallel to the missions, so we would be up there installing hotels and ferrying crew back and forth from earth.

Just an observation, flight #11 is slated for Columbia, but doesn't Columbia lack an ODS?

Hi I'm getting back into orbiter after a long time hiatus. I would love to help with this project. Can you slot me for Flight 17?

Pretty tough getting that payload up there eh?

(depending on your fuel config for the XR5 )

Not sure myself, Kyle is preparing those flights.

Flt 21 Please. Also, how long will we have between missions?

Actually, that's not correct. Earlier in this thread I posted:

http://orbiter-forum.com/showthread....2&postcount=33

Basically, some of the flight numbers have changed because I had to add a few extra crew rotation flights to ensure an even 6-month rotation.

Hey thanks for a spot on flight 20!
I actually completed mission 2 last night in under 12 hours. Connected the cupola, docked the DOCK1 and also docked the XR5 and circularised the orbit.
Successful yet hard 12 G reentry (survived in the XR5).
I practiced ultrarealism during the RMS construction of the station by deploying a ummu outside to "watch and inspect" the process. Through the eyes only of the EVA I remote controlled the RMS to successfully build the station.

Anyone else do the challenge?
I'm hitting the simulator now for the big 20 flight!!

I was thinking that if you keep the replays from the flights and send them to me I could make a video history of OFSS III to post on youtube. Anyone interested?

That's a pretty cool idea. I don't have much of an "eye" for video editing, so I'll send you my playback (or interesting snippets).
