The XR-5 Vanguard is a high-performance Spacecraft created for Orbiter by the Altea Aerospace team. The XR5's mesh was designed by Russel Hicks, texturing work done by PennyBlack, and payloads designed by Carmen A & Tom Fisher. Coding work to add multiple subsystems, failure modes and Payload Management is done by Douglas Beachy, as with other vessels in the XR series. The initial 1.0c release came on April 20, 2008, and the most recent release was 1.13 on February 20, 2018. (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...)
