  1. You spin me right round, baby, right round, Like the record, baby, right round round round
  2. I do. Level 1 seems more sharp than stock and not so different from other parts as L2. Good thing)
  3. No sad feelings about that, mr. Beale, this great mod is way more important to me than any fonts
  4. Even being a russian speaker, 1.3's russian localisation font is so awkward I'm still on 1.2.2 myself.
  5. Early Soyuz with active and passive docking devices - I guess now we can make something like that. A cargo train of thanks to you, mr. Beale)
  6. Wow... It's kind of a dangerous way of ascending.
  7. Plesetsk military cosmodrome was built for a reason) Zenit's flaw was that it must be deorbited for photos retrieval, so it's lifespan was short. At least cameras and other equipment were able to be launched multiple times.
  8. Yup, Salyut-1. Edited a link, you can retry. P.S. Some extra ideas - Zenith (military recon sat), Resurs (earth observation sat), Bion (biological experiments sat), and Foton (material sciences research sat) unmanned craft series were (and are) widely used and they're basically a heavily modified Vostok capsule.
  9. Here is my attempt to put together the dimensions I've found. One thing - the overall station length is stated to be 13,6 m but sum of the station's compartments lengths is 13,9. This mismatch is possibly (my best guess) due to the working compartment spherical wall being partly inside docking compartment (marked with green arrow).
  10. Building and testing something as complicated as TMK will take a lot (more like A LOT) of time - so, in order to actually do something, you need to start doing things beforehand. Also, launch was planned to match an exact time in 1971, when Earth-to-Mars distance was minimal. So, no delays were possible.
  11. Forgive me for this, please https://goo.gl/photos/c8UH2c4bZz97zfRY9
  12. And now I am confused too, cuz THIS is Soyuz-MS: TMA and TMA-M confurmed using dual nozzles, then just what the heck I've found?
  13. One extra pic of Soyuz' orientation thrusters, as they were arranged before this last modification of Soyuz-MS
  14. You shure will. Below here is a pic of first ISS module Zarya (Dawn). It's basically a big warehouse, fuel tank and engine mount, and it's not as spasious inside, as you'd wish - even if things weren't stockpiled on the floor like that. Good news, not all modules are that small. For ex., russian ISS segment core module Zvezda (Star), wich dimensions are more or less similar with Salyuts and Mir base block:
