Giotto - 25th Anniversary

Post #1by BrianJ » 02.05.2010, 16:12

Hi,
since it's almost 25 years since the launch of the Giotto mission to Comet Halley, I guess this might as well be a "25th Anniversary Edition" add-on for Celestia 1.6.0 .

Includes a new spacecraft model and trajectory files, modification for comet 1P/Halley during flyby orbit, additional comet 26P/Grigg-Skjellerup.

Trajectory reconstructed using Orbiter Spaceflight Simulator and JPL Horizons data, from launch in 1985 to 2016. Includes flybys of Halley, Grigg-Skjellerup, Earth.

Download "giotto_25th_anniversary.zip" file here, 4.7Mb.
