The CST-100 Starliner over Floridas east coast
With the commercial crew program approaching its first launches I think Boeing's CST-100 Starliner shall be in Orbiter as well. This is an early version. Code and everything are a little rough and need improvement over time.
Reliable data on the CST-100 are difficult to find. This is what I estimated:
CM mass 4400 kg (including a crew of 5)
SM mass 5100 kg dry + 3100 kg fuel
Nose covers and aerodynamic skirt 400 kg (these are jettisoned during ascent)
The vessel can either be launched on an
- Atlas V using Multistage2015 by fred18, or
- Falcon9 for Orbiter 2016 by BrianJ
A ... Abort engines manually, deliver 5-6 g for a few seconds
K ... Hatch open/close, animation needs improvement
J ... Abort when on Atlas V (press multiple times)
ctrl-Arrow up, down ... switch virtual cockpit eyepoint
ctrl-J ... Jettison service module
Switch virtual cockpit eyepoint with ctrl-arrow up, down.
Note: This version is somewhat unstable because of mesh bugs.
