Hello to the Unmanned Spaceflight community!

First of all sorry for my bad English (not my native language...)
I'm a not a constant reader of the board, but I'm visiting from time to time.

Because of the existance of this forum (Voyager/Pioneer) I just wanted to let you know the release of a 3D model of Voyager within the Celestia community, model which cost me quite a hard work because of the few documents available on the net. This model is adapted for a 3D real time use, this mean it's not highly detailled (must run on medium config), but still a nice model.

After a quick search I saw that many of you already know Celestia but for those who don't, just a few words; Celestia is a real time 3D visualisation soft. It's purpose is to give people a tool to visualise space in an interactive way, from spacecrafts to DSO. The soft is Opensource and multi platform (Linux, osX, Windows), based on professional catalogues and in constant dev. It is used by many people for educational purpose but also by the big space agency (Nasa/ESA).

Now back to the model:
The trip of this ship was really incredible... a few shots within Celestia:

Here a link to download the model:

Hope you will enjoy it!

Ahh - great stuff, I'll give it a go.

And now, at last, a thread to find out about Rosetta in Celestia. There are several different models/trajectories - do you know which will most accurately show the Mars flyby next month?
