someone can find the space for a permanent mirror

I will put it on the Space Outreach Library in due course, when I am a bit less busy.

Just out of curiosity ... would there be a "demand" for such large files to be available offline, i.e. burnt on CD and sent my snail mail, for a nominal fee of say US$x for 1 to 2 CDs to cover for postage & stationary & a bit extra for the time involved? This could be a service that the Space Outreach Library could offer, of course only with the approval of the authors of the files in question (I dont want to appear to be "selling" other people's work)

holy mother, what an amazing development since the first already stunning video! - a great work of art and science to come home to after the summer vacation. Art because you really nailed the music score, nd because of various flourishes like the final zoom-out.

Only slight thing I can't get my non-engineer mind around is showing the swinging under the parachute with the viewpoint fixed to the backshell, and not to the shared c.o.g. of the backshell-parachute combo. In my "reality" the backshell should be not just wiggling - as it seems from the movie - but swinging quite violently around as well. Just a question of visualization, I know.

Thanks so much Kwan, you well deserve the kudos heaped on you. From the Phoenix team as well no less!
