While it is impossible to do in real life, crashing into the atmosphere at 21,000 mph is fun when you get bored in Orbiter.
It's fun for me at least.

A dwarf planet is still a planet, or did you miss the 'planet' in dwarf planet.

That would be like saying a dwarf is not a human. That's pretty rude where I come from.

On the subject of g-forces, what do you think is the maximum g force that an SSME can stand?

Thing is, dwarf planets don't have feelings.

They feel gravity. They're planets. Get over it.

Now about the g-force thing. Max g that a modern reusable engine can take, running flat out, on a modern lightweight booster, just before the fuel runs out. Five gees? Six? Eight? This is an important question if you haven't figured that out yet.

The guy's got a point. Above a certain number of gees, the engine would stop working.

no, its not fake.  I docked on the surface of the sun(bug which generates crazy results), sped time warp to 10000 x,
fired main engines, and undocked.

Hey, stop changing the topic, stop saying about new horizons, Planet (Mind you, it really isn't a planet) pluto, we are talking about G-force (If I don't have any
manners, I'm sorry). And I think in the DGIV, there is a programming problem, one time, the G-force went to over a millon Gs, the crew didn't die like the G-
Force was nothing! Maybe someone should correct it.

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:

Actually, in the 1950's I believe, there were some scientists runnig tests to see how many G-Forces a pilot could
withstand on a jet going faster than the speed of sound (Or something else, can't remember well), the test guy got
over 50 G's on his eyes and was temporarilly blinded, but still alive (Amazing what the human anatomy can do isn't it).

I'll do it: i'll send here the scenario text so you'll just have to cut off the engine when you 'll be at 4M and press level.
it need's aerobrake mfd to see the g number because the reentry is soooooo fast and you wont be able to see on
mfd surface.
In fact i made my playback while i was playing amso 1.16 but i don't really know how to send my playback.
@+ i also have a screenshot but how to send it?
