Default Lunar Prospector, Athena II and Cape Canaveral SLC-46

January 7th had marked the 21st anniversary of the launch of NASA's Lunar Prospector spacecraft. as we may need an addon for the spacecraft alongside the Athena II (in Multistage2015) with SLC-46.

The Lunar Prospector will be one of the new addons for Orbiter 2016.

I've got an Anthena 1 and 2 that I'd been working on for multistage. Have to find them though. That computer crashed and I lost a lot of work.

rough model


It looks like that white antenna might retract? So not sure if we have the other stuff. But I should get the animations to work and spin.

So I got the Athena2 meshes from here:
Athena-2ELVbeta05


I got stage 1 and 2 in MS2015. and maybe 3rd stage as I don't know how it fits?

But need specs on the mass of the different stages.

If that's the one I'm thinking of, the Orbit Adjust Module (OAM) is all jacked up. I can't remember what all was wrong with it other than it was messed up.

Thanks. It looks it has just a third stage and then fairing

Thanks. I didn't see until today that you had built some Athenas.

So I built the 1st and 22nd stage. with interstages. The one on the Hangar the interstage were built with the stages.
So he has a 3rd stage but no OAM.

good images:
http://www.b14643.de/Spacerockets_2/.../Athena-II.htm

So it looks like we need a OAM and kickstart.

I think getting meshes wouldn't be too hard. But not sure as far as modules. I suppose kickstart to be 4stage in ms2015.



---------- Post added at 09:19 PM ---------- Previous post was at 07:23 AM ----------

So now a bit confused.
The specs say the OAM is 1.0 height and 2.3 dia. the castor is 2.34dia and 3.5 meter high.



So i wonder if the 1 meter height on the OAM is to the top of the cone for kickstart. I think the top of the 3rd stage might be wrong also?

I'd initially built the 1st stage with a separate interstage, but too many pictures and refs I'd found had them as one piece, so I built them together as well. The 2nd stage (or 3rd for an Athena 2) using the Orbus 21D I'd made looked pretty much like this https://goo.gl/images/g7P5n9 with a small shoulder in order to accommodate the slightly smaller OAM.

The OAM, that's a goofy little guy. The payload adapter is much taller than the stage I've got a hardcopy of the patent application. It uses 4 small nozzles sticking out the side to provide thrust and steering.

https://historicspacecraft.com/rockets.html

I may see if I can do some forensics on my old hard drive. I had some pretty good reference pictures, and all those meshes. I had their COTS demo built also. Basically an Athena-1 sitting atop a 2.5 segment version of the shuttle SRB. I can't remember how big the fairing was, 3, 4 meters or something....

Here's a good picture, wish I had it to work from years ago.

Thanks. I think I got it.

it looks like the 3rd stage is the oam and castor30.

I try that free patent site but couldn't find the oam.

Thanks. I suppose for the purpose of MS2015 the 3rd stage (Castor 30) and OAM should be 1 mesh as far as ms2015, right?
Then the kickstart would be the 4thstage and LP payload
Not sure how the guidance should be set up on this? Like what orbit?

Here is that patent:
http://www.freepatentsonline.com/5816539.pdf

lots of info. I think it will be just a static mess. Animation the thrusters would be a pain.
I thought the slc 46 was on there also but not found it
