Sensor readout in action (since when does twitter support gifs?)

With the release of the Unity 4.6 beta comes the new GUI system. As such, began drafting up the flight UI

@elakdawalla Assuming my math IS correct though, Rosetta's solar panels would stretch an apparent diameter of ~1/3 that of the full moon.

@elakdawalla Unsure how that translates to pixel resolution though (or if I actually math'd right)

@elakdawalla Did a little math, at 10 km, Philae looks to be 20 arcsec acrosss from Rosetta, Rosetta looks to be 10 arcminutes from Philae

@elakdawalla ... or vice-versa for that matter! Unsure if the resolution and FoV of Philae's cameras would permit imaging Rosetta though.

@elakdawalla And that's from 104 km away... here's a thought - at 10 km, how big in pixels will Philae look to Rosetta after it's landed?

@PlanetDr As a more general note, isn't it great how there seem to be more habitable environments in the outer solar system?

@PlanetDr But for titan you need heavy heat shielding, heavy -cold- shielding, and a monstrous umbilical cable. An interesting tradeoff!

@PlanetDr In particular, Europa landing from trans-jupiter trajectory requires ~12 km/s delta-v, compared to 0 for direct entry at Titan
