  1. Hi everyone, updating y'all on this as Talv cannot, CD won't return for a week as he had a foot injury. Oh hello page 4!
  2. Skylab 1 - Part 2 "Crippled Station" Skylab flips to 90° for direct alignment with the Sun. ATM deployment ATM deploys her wings Skylab flips to a 45° angle instead of 90° for better thermal controls. Goodnight Skylab. After multiple anomalies and issues with the launch of Skylab NASA has delayed Skylab 2 until a solution for saving the crippled station with its solar panel deployment and thermal issues can be resolved, until then Skylab will remain in orbit with a 45° angle for better thermals instead of the originally desired 90° angle for solar generation. Sorry folks for taking so long, it has been a super busy week I will try to get Skylab 2 done for next week
  3. Sorry folks I've been busy, part 2 will be up either tomorrow or Thursday!
  4. Skylab 1 - May 14 1973 Part 1 After hard work since 1968 Skylab which was originally was named Orbital Workshop (OWS) is finally ready to soar the skies, it is a historical day for NASA and the United States as it marks the last launch of the Saturn V, the first launch of an American space station, and the largest spacecraft ever built. Mans dreams long stays in space are about to become true. Skylab 1 waits on LC-39A with Skylab 2 on LC-39B Skylab 1 prepares for launch. Swing Arm 3 retract. Mark! T-1 Minute and continuing to count. T-24 Seconds, Swing Arm 1 retract! T-16 Swing Arm 2 retract! 12.. 11.. 10.. 9.. 8.. We have ignition sequence.. 6.. 5.. 4.. 3.. 2.. 1.. We have a liftoff! The Skylab lifting off the pad now! Skylab has cleared the tower! Mark T+18 seconds, pitch and roll program started, Saturn V currently now on flight path T+ Minute, Display data shows stable thrust on all five engines Roll program complete. Anomaly S-II performing on the spot Skylab Sep. Anomaly Part 2 Coming soon!
  5. Ad Scientiam et Humanitatem Intro: For around 3 months I have spent a lot of time researching the Skylab program and procrastinating about what an alternative history of Skylab would've looked like if it went right. This will be my own take based on what I love and dozens of studies, PDFs, concepts, etc from the various space agencies/companies pitched for Skylab, mainly the Reuse Study by McDonnel Douglas and the Power Tower studies by Lockheed. It will focus mainly on Skylab being a S&D station and extended by the Space Shuttle. The thread will contain 1 mission per post containing KSP Screenshots and diagrams. Thanks: @Talverd For his help with certain ideas, pure support, and the main inspiration for all of this and please check out his fantastic "Chasing Dreams" alternative history. @Kuiper_Belt With their Incredible Shuttle Adventures The Beginning. Skylab 1 and Skylab 2 (SLM-1) wait on their respected pads. May 14th 1973. Full Mission List Coming Soon..
  6. @ZorgWhen could we see the twin-pole shield added? would be very nice to have I know you said a year ago you had plans for it
  7. Having the same issue as the other dude, when you place an IR part the IR toolbar icon is supposed to pop up and it doesn't for me. I am on 1.11.1, installed it off of github, using V3.0.7
  8. From the Skylab Reuse study and Cobalt has already said the reboost module will not be added
  9. Any updates for this? Excited for the H3
