I am creating 2 spaceflight-related alternate histories which would include missions directly launched to Mercury. However, there has never been a direct mission to Mercury (all of them have used gravity assists), preventing me from using an existing launch and the synodic period to calculate their launch dates (the only method I know how to use). So, does anyone know any optimal launch dates for direct Mercury transfers?
I love how developers are putting the date of release (or the date of latest release) in the titles of the threads. But since KSP is such a worldwide phenomenon, the different date formats can be confused. May I suggest we use the KSP Forum date notation inside brackets [ ] as a standard: [Day Month(3 letter abbreviation) Year] Examples: [3 Nov 2016] [11 Dec 2016] [10 Feb 2016] Its not a big deal, but it may be just a touch more user friendly.
