  1. - Smell that? You smell that? - What? - UDMH, son. Nothing else in the world smells like that. I love the smell of dimethylhydrazine in the morning. You know, one time we had a Proton fueled, for 12 hours. When it was all over, I walked up. We didn't leave one of 'em on the ground, not one stinkin' GEO satellite. The smell, you know that gasoline smell, the whole cosmodrome. Smelled like... space. Someday this space program's gonna end... Jeb and his Baikonour flashbacks
  2. Hm-m-m, it's a bit messy with names, but you can get the main idea about what's what and what's supposed to be launched from where)
  3. To make some things clearer: Feniks (Phoenix) is a name of an R&D project for a new LV development done by Energia corp. Soyuz-5 (Union-5) is a name for a russian variant of an LV Sunkar (kaz. Falcon) is a name for a kazakh variant of an LV
  4. You are way too cruel even comparing to russian standards...
  5. * Still dying to have some of these preety and long-time missing Salyut-Mir parts * ...meanwhile: - Suppose I can survive in waiting a little more
  6. You spin me right round, baby, right round, Like the record, baby, right round round round
  7. I do. Level 1 seems more sharp than stock and not so different from other parts as L2. Good thing)
  8. No sad feelings about that, mr. Beale, this great mod is way more important to me than any fonts
  9. Even being a russian speaker, 1.3's russian localisation font is so awkward I'm still on 1.2.2 myself.
  10. 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)
  11. Wow... It's kind of a dangerous way of ascending.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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).
