1  Project Apollo - NASSP / Project Apollo - NASSP News & Discussion / Re: RIP Gene Cernan on: January 16, 2017, 04:35:05 PM
Very saddend by this news.

Apollo 17 is my favourite mission of all Apollo flights.

The initials of his daughter he inscribed into the moon dust prevail at Taurus-Littrow valley for eons to come...

 Sorry

Happy Anniversary!

Not relating solely on Apollo 11, I found this really interesting:

Very nice work, Kristoffer! Much appreciated. Will look through them asap. They certainly have the look like the originals.

 Thumbs Up

That's R10 (12 March2013) on Orbiter Build Aug 30 2010 (100830). I only have tested it with AMSO so far, AMSO works great on that engine. I am yet to put NASSP on top of that Orbiter installation.
Shouldn't pose a problem, Tschachim, or is the R10 client not suitable for NASSP?

I have accumulated about roughly over 3 GB worth of *.pdf files about Project Apollo on my HD. Not that much, but if someone needs anything, let me know, I'll try to dig it up in my "archive".

Too bad about the NTRS shutdown... so much unprecedented historical information locked away.  Sad

Marisa, thank you for letting us know! Send him all the best wishes from me too. I hope he will have a speedy recovery! Health and family are number one, then come hobbies... a.s.o.

Hang in there, dseagrav!

Hello guys, long time no see!  How's everyone of the team doing?  Happy

Just as a reference for the future, which could be useful for creating historically correct scenarios, the ephemeris of Apollo 15, 16 and 17 CSM are made available. See the links below for more details:

Example:

I started working on the Lunar Module again, jarmonik's reflection feature of his lates D3D9 Client sparked my Apollo fascination again! The CM looks SO GOOD with the reflecting surface  Yes

Hope to see things here gearing up a little!

Very nice work on the new 2D panels, Moonwalker!  Thumbs Up

I THINK I FOUND THE ORIGINAL REFSMMAT LIST.
Wait while i confirm it.


Oh boy, that sound too good to be true.
12  Project Apollo - NASSP / Project Apollo - NASSP Development / Re: Wrong COAS reticule on: September 14, 2010, 04:09:52 PM
Hello there! A quick search brings up this. Is our reticle really wrong?

13  Meadville Space Center / Orbiter / Re: We might have a publicity problem on: March 13, 2010, 04:52:20 AM
It solely depends on your personal preferences.  AMSO is excellent. Project Apollo too. Even more once we have the lunar landing missions included.  Very Happy
14  Project Apollo - NASSP / Support & Bugs / Re: Panel lights in CSM on: March 09, 2010, 02:04:28 AM
Well, there's a few panels of the LM missing yet, which I suspect Moonwalker is working on. As he mentioned above, he intended to work on the illuminated/night panels after all panels are completed. You can check the current (LEM) panel status via the link he gives in his signature.
15  Meadville Space Center / Off Topic / Re: Movie mistake in Apollo 13? Wrong CM panel placements?! on: March 07, 2010, 03:45:29 AM
Well, I can only speak for myself right now, but I suspect similar goes for the whole NASSP team: I do not bother for taking the Apollo 13 movie as a reference. IMHO, it's a movie for the big crowd, and includes a lot of artistic license.  And there are plenty of additional errors to the ones you pointed out above. For example I clearly remember (I don't have the movie (not without reason Rolling Eyes)) that they passed pretty low over the planned landing site (Fra Mauro) during their return trajectory, which already cannot be possible, since the perilune would have been above the far side of the moon. More to that, they look out of the window and one of the astronauts, while looking down at the terrain when passing over said landing site, says something to the effect "there it is, Fra Mauro" (the planned landing site) or he even says "Mare Tranquilitatis" and then you are shown the Hadley-Rille area outside the window. Bangs Head 2 And in the still image you posted above, with the LEM sitting on the surface, the +Z-axis (towards the leg with the ladder) would be pointed downsun; the hills on the horizon to the left and right of the LEM are clearly mirrored images of the South and East Massifs as seen from the Apollo 17 landing site at Taurus-Littrow. And that's just to begin with, but I'll stop now.  Bangs Head
I'm totally OK when people like this movie, however to me there are tons of a lot more valuable references available, like the Project Apollo Image gallery or movies from Spacecraftfilms. What's better than real world stuff anyway.  Happy
