General Discussion / Re: Ceres Challenge
« Last post by Marz13 on April 22, 2017, 12:05:46 AM »
I have taken my own challenge, and I've have some luck.  I started with the Saturn V in Earth orbit. I did a burn for a Hoffman transfer to Ceres orbit.  When I arrived I was early as usual.  I did a second burn to complete the Hoffman transfer. By that time I was down to just the command module and lander.  I waited in orbit for 4 plus years to catch up to Ceres. At that point I had to turn the unlimited fuel on.  It took about 5 mins to slow from 7000m/s to 600m/s. Then I had reached orbit around Ceres.

It might have been Vesta.  I'll probably go there next. On those small bodies it more of a rendezvous than a landing.  Have you tried orbiting Phobos? Doesn't really work. It just too small.

i think I landed on an asteroid once. Not sure which one -thou- ,was a bit tricky due to the negligible gravity.

It's been about a week since I've posted this challenge, I'm still hoping to see some reply and pics.  I'd be interested to hear if anyone landed on Ceres.  🚀

Feature Request / Re: Cassini probe journey

Thanks for sharing this.  
Some facts about Cassini (that Google told me)
Lanched Oct 15th 1997
Reached orbit around Saturn on July 1st 2004

To get to Saturn Cassini did two flybys of Venus, one of Earth and one of Jupiter.

This will be the end of a pretty awesome mission.
Hi I am wondering if all the enhancements/graphics/shaders would or even could run on the new iPad Pro if so can all the desktop stuff come to iPad Pro
Feature Request / Cassini probe journey

is coming to an end. On 26 April the Cassini probe will crash into Saturn, it's final destination. This made me think perhaps unmanned probes can form part of the Space Simulator missions? There won't be any controls. Just scheduling the path and watching the planets go by..
Report your Bugs here! / SLS reentry crash

I can't renter in the SLS reentry module whenever I get to 67.0km it kicks me out of the game on iPhone.
And I can't land on other planets with the apollo lunar lander.
General Discussion / Ceres Challenge

Has any one here made it to Ceres?  In orbit or landed?  Ceres is one of the few bodies that you can't instantly arrive at by custom missions.  I'd like to challenge the message board readers to reach an orbit around Ceres and/land on the planetoid.  Doesn't matter if you start from Earth or Mars.  Please post pics here or on the Space Simulater facebook page, and post notice of your accomplishment here.
Good luck to everyone who attempts this challenge.
