You don't want to exceed 3 Gs in a spacecraft. Anything over that gets uncomfortable. Based on my old Loadmaster  experience,
cargo is only secured for 3 Gs forward restraint anyhow. I'm sure the limits are even more stringent on the Space Shuttle.
This is also the reason you want to be slow over the Cape, because you can exceed your G limit pulling too hard of a bank.
9Gs in very short duration are the max for a fighter pilot.

This being said, when the shuttle lifts off, notice that the engines throttle down. The reason is because of dynamic pressure
in that case on the outside of the vehicle. As the spacecraft nears MECO, the engines may also throttle back to maintain 3 Gs
acceleration.

He's actually pointing down since it says slope -65.3 degrees at mach 14.6, most likely is that he was somewhere
near either the Artic or the Antartic (or a very cold planet's atmosphere like pluto) since it's about -17 degrees celcius.

Since when did Pluto have an atmosphere? And since when did Pluto become a planet?

Poor Pluto, not a planet anymore. How come there is no Pluto in Orbiter?

It's a dwarf planet, and I'm only guessing that it has a very small atmosphere.

Well it's probably because we so far don't have a clear image of it since pluto is about 3 billion miles away from us.

True but it won't happen until 2015, and maybe by that time we will truly have this kind of tech like the dgiv and
preludeII, or we'll be talking about the moon, and if we screw up on taking the image, 1.We will have to wait about
248 years or something and we'd obiously be dead be that time, and 2. we lose about 2 billion dollars on a nine foot
tall machine because it's so fast, we can't use the translational thrusters to change it's trajectory(it's traveling at what,
like 34,500 miles per hour?)

Man you'd be dead before a millisecond past if you get to 151.2G that fast.
So how did you get that many G's anyway, I want to see if I can do it.

The poor New Horizons mission to. It was supossed to be the first spacecraft to go to the PLANET Pluto and now its
only going to a dwarf planet.

whats the fastest speed you can get useing only you engines and re-fueling them with the scenario editor?  I got
2.380AU per second, no I didn't put time warp 10000000x and smash into a planet or moon or sun.

Lol, that planet express ship that you can find at orbithangar, I put unlimited fuel in the scenario,Planet expess at iss,
pointed it towards the sun and in about a day I reached Venus(I had the engine running all the time) and in 20 days I
reached Neptune(What I like to call(Around The Solar System In 80 Days)).  It took me a year to reach 0.0078AU per
second and I was about 38500AU away from Earth.

What I think about that record is that the pilot should be dead and fried :hot:
The max for humans is that I know is 12 G's.
Did you put the DGIV in Chicken Mode, didn't you?
even if the pilot alive the ship would crash into the air like into a wall! :wall:
