The Apollo 11 mission

A still unfinished task, but very close to conclusion. With this project Christophe reached what I think is the best compromise between the actually available hardware resources, and his capability.



The ongoing project in our Forums


The Buran Orbiter mission

Probably because my previous effort in helping Christophe has been super valued, Runar (rthorvald) asked me if I could help find the data needed to show the first (and only) orbital flight of the Russian Orbiter - Buran, the close relative of the US Shuttle. Obviously I accepted, and you can find the results in rthorvalds page.


The Voyager missions

Probably someone thinks this was to be an easier job, but strangely it’s not true.


Scarce documents and poor images compelled Christophe and myself to ask Celestians for help, and they fortunately replied positively.


Frank Gregorio very kindly took the time to go to the Smithsonian Museum to take close-ups of their Voyager model - enabling Christophe to add the last missing details to his model of the probe that visited and imaged all Solar System giants.
