in the pictures, Luna-3 at minimum distance from the Moon... min distance: 6182,2 km in Celestia ( 6200 km in Wikipedia)... Closest approach: 1959, October 6, 14:18:20 UTC in Celestia ( 14:16:00 UTC in Wikipedia)...

after launch from the Baikonur Cosmodrome (Kazakhstan)...

Because there is no a lot of data about this flight and I don't have the computers like in NASA, in my version of the mission, entrance in the atmosphere and next decay of Luna-3 spacecraft occurred in the night sky over the west part of the South America... on December 9, 1959, 07:14:12 UTC...

Mars 2010 Rover

Hi Toutatis.
Is there any possibility thet you will realize the next Mars 2020 Mission Rover?
Here a very nice movie showing clearly it
It looks quite similar to Curiosity.
Goofy :smile:

Added later: I found a 3D model by emin31284, License:CC Attribution Creative Commons, here:
Il looks not so bad, IMHO. :wink:

Added after 3 hours 33 minutes:
Some images of that 3D model.

Luna-2 before impact... just several seconds... In real it occurred 1959, 13 December, 21:02:24 UTC... In Celestia it occurred 1959, 13 December, 21:02:05 UTC... about impact place... in real it impacted the Moon's surface east of Mare Imbrium with coordinates 29,1 degrees North latitude - 0 degrees East longitude... In Celestia it place with latitude about 29 degrees but longitude is about 26 degrees...
what I can say... without NO historical data about orbital parameters after launch it too hard to solve this problem... AND... I use SPICE kernels (from NASA) for making trajectories, so it brings some difference when I use these trajectories in Celestia... but anyway I reached Mare Imbrium too... :biggrin:

Added after 3 minutes 45 seconds:
maybe with time I will make more correct trajectory...
