A moment after passing perigee of moon's gravity assist on the way to Mars , saved tons of fuel yet still can be enhanced to save more...thank you Mr. Moon

    Oh that's specific and I don't even know how how to view calendar or date and time in the game. I'll have to watch the whole video when I get WiFi. Thanks a lot for the info

    @crowxe you can check the transfer that I use in the BFR video. It's in Year 1 Day 344 at 10:40 aprox

    Great . How far is it when the orbit is complete? For me the minimum was dozens of times (or hundreds of times) the gravity field of Mars which takes tons of fuel to push it there.

    @crowxe I have a couple of nice windows for Cylero transfers

    Maybe later I'll work on time window to launch to Mars (again with angles, not calendar) I did that to find the moon window, by calculating the time of half the orbit and how many degrees the moon covers during that time

    @crowxe ah, I thought you were going to Mars directly

    looks like you talking about Mars , unlike the moon, i don't have launch window for Mars ,i only make an orbit that is tangiant to Mars orbit and wait for luck lol. but even for the Moon i don't know days and hours, just angles window

    @crowxe but do you know the year/day/hour?

    Lol too many usages of the word "window" but anyway, I adjusted time window for escape burn and lunar day (60 degrees before the moon being eclipsed by earth)

    @crowxe ...

    The window is the instant of time ingame :/

    A bit of Wikipedia (for orbit time equations ...etc) and trial & error in this simulator)

    i trust you, ... where and how did you self-study about orbits?

    I do the gravity assist behind the moon in a manner that the craft enters the moon's gravity before reaching apogee, the time window for that is waiting for the moon position to be around 150 degree clockwise from where you'll start your escape burn.

    For using that gravity assist for mars you need to have the above mentioned configuration when the moon is nearly eclipsed by earth (or several degrees before that)

    cool,
    how'd you do it?
    in front or behind the moon?
    is there a specific window?
