It was launched on 26 November 1965 by a Diamant A rocket from the CIEES launch site at Hammaguir, Algeria. With Astérix, France became the sixth country to have an artificial satellite and the third country to launch a satellite on its own rocket. Its main purpose was to test the Diamant launcher, though it was also designed to study the ionosphere. Astérix orbits Earth as of December 2020 and is expected to do so for centuries." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Astérix_(satellite)
i never even heard of this probe, there are so many probes orbiting earth right now i don't know about
:think:

nice! :clap:

I was 13 when Asterix was launched. I remember it and I was already passionate about it. :smile:

There are over ~5,000 spacecraft in total around Earth and elsewhere in the Solar System, with about ~3,000 in active service, mostly geostationary comsats, cubesats, and Starlink satellites. The 5,000 figure includes ones that have been deorbited and derelict in orbit, as well as landers, rovers, and others

that's a lot of tons of material that left the planet. The Earth is lighter! :smile: :think: :eek:

Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS)

after Galileo System (ESA) NAVSTAR GPS (USA) GLONASS (Russia) here are the GNSS systems:
Michibiki (Japan)
Beidou (China)
INRSS (India)
I don't have specific 3D models so I am using satgeneric.cmod
Orbital data comes from the Celestrack site. As usual, each satellite definition includes the 'Visible false' line for use with Lut5's Vidiba module. If this is not your case, you must override the parameter by commenting it out (#Visible false).

LISA Pathfinder

Post #1588by DaveBowman2001 » 03.07.2021, 01:57

LISA Pathfinder, formerly known as SMART-2, was an ESA spacecraft that was launched on 3 Dec 2015 on board a Vega rocket. The mission tested technologies needed for the future Laser Interferometer Space Antenna (LISA), an ESA gravitational wave observatory planned to be launched in 2034. The scientific phase started on 8 March 2016 and lasted almost sixteen months. After accomplishing its mission and proving that the mission concept to be used on the future gravitational wave observatory is feasible, the spacecraft was decommissioned on 30 Jun 2017

In the space all spacecrafts is very bright because of materials they made... even if they near Jupiter or Saturn... so plz, remember this!

Hi. Just discovered this thread. I am slowly revising the free Educational Activities I used to create for schools who wanted to use Celestia in classrooms. To that end, I am seeking spacecraft models for (1) MAVEN, (2) Mars Perseverance Rover (3) The Parker Solar Probe and (4) Musk's Spaceship1. Do any of them exist for Celestia yet?

You can use a NASA model to make a cmod version.

Perseverance and Ingenuity can be created easily.

I absolutely agree. Some spacecrafts I had to ignore because of the mediocre quality. :weirdface:

Just found the models for Perseverance, MAVEN and Parker Solar Probe. Thanks so much.

I meant Starship1. Assuming Musk plans to get it into orbit soon, it would be nice to include a model of it in my educational activities. Since it has little surface texture aside from being stainless steel looking, just wondering if anyone has made a Celestia model of it yet?

Thanks so much. Am I to presume this craft will be similar to the one Musk plans to send to Mars, with 100 people onboard? If so, good grief! Spending 8 - 10 months inside this small silo is ... NUTS!

Yeah, albeit last time i checked, Starship (the grain silo-looking crewed second stage) is 50 meters tall, and its 2017 design had an pressurized volume of ~825 m3... So its not small at all!

I have completed the model for the Tianzhou spacecraft as part of the Tiangong Space Station addon. However this release is not part of that project. I'm releasing the Tianzhou mesh here as a unitary stand-alone addon for people's various interests/needs (use it as a Tiangong-1/-2, whatever you want to do, etc).
