  1. How do I calculate the surface longitude where I start my transfer burn to geostationary altitude, given the surface longitude where I want my satellite to end up, my current altitude and orbital period, and my current longitude? I'm trying to write a kOS program that puts a satellite into a precise-ish slot in geostationary orbit. My probe is powered by a single ion engine and has a wet mass of 1.726 tonnes.
  2. NASA announced on Oct. 30, 2018, that Kepler has run out of propellant and is being retired within its current and safe orbit.
  3. TESS for KSP i have recreate the TESS satellite for ksp you can download it here : Download (SpaceDock) - Satellite License - WTFPL if you have any problem tell me, i will do my best for resolve it ! (sorry for English mistake i am french ^^)
  4. I am beginning my new series of The Atlas and Delta Legacy Basically in this series I will be covering the missions launched by ULA's Atlas V,Delta IV and Delta II. I will be Starting my series with Kepler Space Telescope Kepler:is a planet hunting space telescope launched by a Delta II rocket on 7th of March 2009. Kepler In VAB RS-27A engine ignition GEM-40 ignition and liftoff! First stage Flight 6 GEM-40's separation and 3 GEM-40's ignition 3 GEM-40's separation <Kerbal>Boosters collided into the the first stage but no problem</Kerbal> First Stage flight First stage separation Second stage Ignition Fairing separation Earth-Escape velocity burn Kepler Separation Kepler is ready for some planet hunting!
  5. On May 10th, NASA announced a staggering 1,284 planets discovered by Kepler, raising the about of know planets by over 25%. But the problem with a huge galaxy-load of planets is that the cool, unique, and amazing ones are hidden among the boring and typical Hot Jupiters/Neptunes. Here, we can pick out the best of the bunch and give these planets the attention they deserve. I have a few favorites as well: Kepler-1229b and Kepler-1593b: These are the two most promising planets of the bunch in terms of finding an Earth Analogue. While not the most Earth-like, these guys could be habitable and open up a new planet type: the Super-Mars. These are planets over 0.6 Earth Radii that receive similar solar energy outputs that Mars does in our own solar system. Both Kepler-1229b (Braciaca) and Kepler-1593b (Quirinus) orbit red dwarf stars and have very similar orbital characteristics. Braciaca is the most Earth-like, with less than 1.3 Earth Radii and a possibly thick atmosphere that could raise its temperature to like something in Canada. Quirinus is a giant rocky planet that gets less light than Braciaca, but a moderate greenhouse effect can get it to habitable temperatures. The size of Quirinus makes it a bit iffy in terms of being like Earth. It could well as be a gas dwarf, or be very dense, or be too geologically active for complex life to evolve. Either way, Braciaca and Quirinus will be remembered as some of the most Earth-like planets around M-Dwarfs.
