Bored? Can Get Out To Play With The Sats?


Recommended Posts

A fun little diversion. (maybe I posted this before)

I launched 250 satellites yesterday night. Only two of them are still in orbit this morning.

I guess it *is* rocket science!


Good thing this isn't a 3D model...


I've done this off and on for a few years. I've gotten some sustainable ones, but never just let them go. So I guess you've got a 1 in 125 chance of hittng a good orbit. :) I'm not riding on your rocket! :unsure:

I've been having alot of fun with this during the last week. Longest orbit was about 20 hours.


I launch a massive cluster in one direction at different altitudes and velocitys and see what survives. usually one or two will make it for 3-6 hours. Then do another cluster going the opposite way to keep track of what ones are lasting from the first launch.


Thanks for the entertainment. B)
