Astronautics Forum / Apollo Launch Pad Bunker????
« on: December 15, 2017, 02:25:03 PM »
Interestingly , the famous 39b/a launchpads that we all  know , house an emergency bunker below  , to be used by the astronauts in the case of an emergency (  fire ?) on the launch pad.

Thanks to a sef of pulleys , and a zip line . the 3 astronauts would winch themselves down the 110 meters height , and throught a set of tunnels/blast doors,  lock themselves inside the bunker ,until the big explosion. Remember that a fully fuelled Saturn V has roughtly 1/7th of the explosive power of an Hiroshima-type fission nuclear bomb.






When the risk of explosion would ve been over ( either beacause It actually blew up ) or the fire been put off, the crew would have been recovered with an M113 Armour Troop Carrier .




Most astronauts practiced driving the M113 tracked vehicle , so they could get back to safety . Here is some shuttle-astronaut after his training drive.

yep , this is a well known bug. If you play non-stop from TrnaspositionRotationDocking to Moon landing , the collision of the LM is somehow bigger than It should be , and IT will crash prematurely ..  Simply saving & loading will fix the issue

hi Glowworm. 

Well ,mainly we are migrating the beta-test reporting system ( for both the Steam and the mobile verson ) to Mantis-bug-tracker ( a industry-standard solution ) . 

It is impossible to keep track of the few (mobile ) and numerous (steam ! ) bugs on a forum . Besides , Apollo Girl which is the one in charge of noting down the bugs , and porting them to Mantis-BT , is not here a.t.m.  so its quite complicated..

I ll try to keep an eye on those..

Thanks.
