Hello,
Does anyone here own or have access to an original "Mariner V Handbook"?
There is a pdf version floating around on the internet that looks like and comes from this
https://ntrs.nasa.gov/archive/nasa/casi.ntr...19680027088.pdf
but some of the values in tables 4 and 5 didnt print completely and I am looking for the actual numbers.
There are aprox 9 numbers I want.
Suppossedly they have one at
https://libguides.caltech.edu/jpl/beacon-in...ommons/archives
but I dont work for JPL so I dont have a badge so I cant check anything out.
I emailed someone there but they have not got back to me. I was thinking maybe some of members here might have one and could look.
If you do I can post the specifics here.
thanks

I think you only need to be able to read 4 of those lines to be able to reconstruct the orbital elements of the spacecraft. smile.gif

You are jumping ahead of the game. smile.gif What I ultimately want is the state vector positions relative to J2000 over time even though I think the data is relative B1950 . That link will help some. I am still learning.
