There’s going to be a bit of a delay before I post part two of my series about Bigelow’s chosen trajectory. I got an email from one of my sources at LM with a higher resolution version of their ground track trace, but it appeared to be different from the one shown in the Lockheed paper on L2. They may have changed the trajectory slightly for one reason or another. I want to make sure I have the latest info before I post anything and embarass myself.
Also, if they did change it, I’ll need to go back and reanalyze things a bit. The ground track he showed me makes things better for some areas, but worse for others…
