re: Buying a vehicle in Texas - NASA_ISS_Tiger

Thanks for the memories too Martini....I may be a little younger than you but I too remember days like that. I ...

[quote]What dictates the launch window?[/quote] Orbital mechanics. Launch inclination. TDRSS communications. Orbital path. For ISS it's about chasing station and catching it...for an uncrewed vehicle it's more about number of orbits, comm paths and landing probably. They want to be able ...
