Delta Glider III

The DeltaGliderIII was a vessel addon designed for Orbiter by Dansteph. It featured highly realistic and fully functional cockpit instruments, included flight instruments along with controls for the life support system, electrical systems, and fuel systems. The DeltaGliderIII simulated a live crew which could be killed by incorrect cabin pressure, temperature or CO2 level. Unlike most vessels in Orbiter at the time, the DeltaGliderIII was able to simulate damage due to overloads such as extreme G-forces or reentry temperature, damaging or destroying the vessel. Crew onboard a DeltaGliderIII were able to perform Extra-Vehicular Activities, also a first for Orbiter vessels at the time. (More...)

Transfer orbit example

In spaceflight, rendezvous refers to the event in which two spacecraft meet. This can occur in space or on the surface of a celestial body.

A rendezvous usually takes place in orbit, e.g. when spacecrafts are travelling to a space station. If two spacecraft are close enough to each other (< 300m) and travel in similar orbits they are said to rendezvous. In such a situation, both spacecraft can stay close to the space station with minimal corrections. (More...)
