    Hold on, you said e5, but the diagram shows e6. I'll go with the diagram. d4:
  2. Can somebody please explain how the immunization works? From what I've heard, there's 2 injections, each 3-4 weeks apart. If this is the case, why?
  3. Thanks - I know about the red X, but I'm talking about keeping it active while doing other things, like setting targets and switching focuses.
  4. Something that's bugged me for a long time is that whenever you misclick or select some things with a maneuver node active, it dismisses it, and in many cases, finding the maneuver node again is really annoying. A key binding or some other form of dismissal would be much better than what there is now.
  5. Thanks! Out of curiosity, what type of printer did you use? EDIT: Nevermind, I see it's a depositional.
  6. On to Mars and the asteroid belt! This part is focused on the Martian moons and Vesta. dV margins were tight, but the shuttle can't handle the heat of a full aerobrake, so an aerobraking/propulsive braking hybrid was used to capture at Mars. Approaching Mars: Aerobraking: As you can probably see, the control surfaces are at full deployment, however this was not enough, which meant that the RCS had to compensate, so I nearly ran out of RCS fuel on my way to Phobos. Propulsive part of the braking: After a couple more aerobraking passes, I got this orbit:
  7. Is that a F9 I see in the background? If so, where did you get it?
  8. After a brief hiatus from KSP, I wanted to try my hand at a shuttle-themed interplanetary mission in RSS and I figured you shuttle-people might want to see it.
  9. After a brief hiatus from KSP, I decided the best thing to get back into the game was an interplanetary RSS mission. After working through the Kerbin Earth and Mun Moon series of the wonderful Shuttle Challenge, I wanted to take a break from the Mars mission planning and do something else - so here it is. Basically, the shuttle is a medium-sized fairing with wings attached. Inside the fairing is an ISRU unit, batteries, and a lot of fuel. This uses the 1.25 meter ISRU as the 2.5 meter one was too large and heavy to work, so the shuttle is powered by several Gigantors. Heat control is
  10. What are the advantages and disadvantages of pusher vs. puller propeller configurations? This has bugged me for a long time.
  11. 1.11 should work with the bleeding edge Kopernicus: https://forum.kerbalspaceprogram.com/index.php?/topic/195699-191-111r-t-bs-kopernicus-unified-bleeding-edge-branch/
  12. Not just old people are dying and having severe reactions to this "nothingburger of a pandemic." A family member of mine died recently due to COVID-19. A (young) friend of a family member of mine had a severe reaction to COVID-19 and now has severe brain damage, among other organ damage. Just because many old people are dying (young people are dying and have severe reactions as well) is not a reason to stop measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19. People need to get unbiased, accurate information about this pandemic, and they can do that by listening to the scientists and experts in the
  13. Did it get screwed by driving into a tree and crashing?
  14. Amazing photo. I went out with my Maksutov-Cassegrain (convergent evolution, ) last night but clouds rolled in right as I was getting set up.
