AX Interplanetary Lab - After analysing the result from it's first survey on planet HOM, Projek Kaliper brought an unexpected finding which suggest that the waypoint distance to a planet is actually the distance between a craft and the planet's surface. It contradicts the previous thought of a waypoint distance is always between a craft and the centre of a planet.
Projek Kaliper is a survey mission to study the physical of the planets in SOL system by transporting survey crafts on Kaliper Vessel which are planned to visit every planet on the system. The vessel's next stop will be the LUN and the result and detail of the surveys will remain classified until the whole mission is complete.Read more >

Rotating space stations have been in visionaries minds for decades, but tomorrow, two stations will start the spinning burns to apply the first artificial gravity experiment yet released to the public. New information about the feasability of these stations and their designs will come out in following articles.
Station Hammer had an unobserved first run which mimicked the second run.
Space Station Sickle has been cancelled due to the complexity, lack of expected difference in results, and no use for those leftover parts. The parts of Station Hammer will become the spine of a terminal located about 4 o'clock from home, 300 nav outRead more >
Interplanetary Laboratory at Angkasa-X just built and launched a vessel for Projek Kaliper to study the physical of the planets in the SA Universe . The Kaliper Vessel is an unmanned ship built to transport 4 survey crafts required to perform a survey near every planet in the SOL system . Station Builder was choosen to be the 4 survey crafts as it doesn't require a crew and carries the most fuel .
The vessel has 8 fuel tank and two large solar panel which are more than enough to supply the necessery need for the journey. The vessel is propelled by another 2 Station Builder at the middle for the launch and arrival burn.
First Test Survey Worked Better Than Expected
As seen in the mission patch, there are 4 survey crafts needed to perform the s…

Interplanetary Laboratory in Angkasa-X has produced a chart of Distance Between Planets and Stations in SA Universe. The chart may help to plan the fuel, water, oxygen tank or carbon dioxide scrubber needed during an interplanetary travel. It also shows how isolated a planet is compared to other planet when most of the value tabulated in the column or row is high.
Using the coordinate of each objects from NaviComp waypoint, distance of two planet can be retrieved using the calculation as follows:
Distance = √ [ ( x2 - x1 )^2 + ( y2 - y1 )^2 ]
The lab in Angkasa-X used computer to compute and tabulate the values.Read more >

MAS Military published a sequence of images captured during the destruction of a spy station near STA. The missles were launched with the help of a single Angkasa-X 's Siakap X4 rocket to launch quadruple payloads which are the four missles.
The station was exploded and evaporated to solar flare-like radiation. MAS Military not worrying about the impact says that the radiation is harmless and only as 0.05% of the X6.9 solar flare in 2011.Read more >
Angkasa-X has spent $122M on an experimental Moon Base project which was successful but returned a negative result. The project involves two launch of $24.9M Proton set up for Lunar Modules, a $28.675M Punai9+ for Station Builder and five $8.8M Punai9+ for the corridors. Punai is a light rocket series developed by Angkasa-X for light weight payloads. Angkasa-X decided to reuse the remaining corridors and station builder to reduce the expenses up to 50%.
The first trial was to land a Lunar Module docked with a corridor but ended up with an explosion, conlcudes that the lander cannot land with anything docked to it.
Second trial was to dock a landed module with 4 corridor assembled in orbit creating a space-elevator like structure. The long …

Kulat is a 'space city' or 'space habitat' built and owned by Angkasa-X. It works as a host for multiple stations to be docked together and create a large space habitat. Kulat also provides energy and fuel supply for every stations that are docked to it. As a host, it also provides construction services and facilites for the developers that builds and docks their stations to Kulat's spine.
Angkasa-X learned a lot from the construction of it's first station, Ayam . Kulat is designed to be flexible for expansion and convenient to visit. It's location is also easy to navigate to unline Ayam which located further away and requires longer time in orbit before departure burn.
It has a spine which works like a long corridor to host every stat…

A large transport has been constructed in the orbital construction zone near HOM. It will soon leave the solar system on a 1000 year journey to a new star. The crew of 500 will then disembark from the ship and descend onto a planet's surface. They will colonise it and send a message back to HOM to tell us they successfully completed their mission. It has never been done before, and will likely be full of dangers. But the crew of Stellar 1 will endure it all, and accomplish the impossible. Good luck to our brave crew, on a mission to discover new life, new civilisations, and to colonise new worlds.Read more >

Solar Outpost 1 & 2 were two ill-fated stations located near the Sun. They were designed to operate as a pair.
Solar Outpost 1 (SU1) was located very close to the sun to study the solar radiation. Due to the close proximity to the sun, it would be difficult to cool a large self supporting station. Instead a smaller station was designed that required regular replenishment of 02 and C02 scrubbers. A sister station, Solar Outpost 2, was constructed to resupply SU1. Solar Outpost 2 (SU2) was located further from the sun where cooling was not a problem.
The transfer of supplies between SU1 and SU2 was originally intended to be done through a precise alignment of the two stations. The ATV transfer vehicle would use the momentum from undoc…Read more >
Rescue One is an unmanned ship designed to provide fuel, oxygen and power to other ships in an emergency. It is automatically locks onto a distress beacon and travels to its location.
When Rescue One arrives at the location of the emergency, it can automatically dock with the vessel in distress to provide power and atmosphere. The two station refuel silos can also be used to refuel stranded ships with enough fuel to return home.
The solar panels on the stand-alone laboratory combined with the batteries inside, provide enough power to recharge other ship's batteries. The oxygen garden keeps the atmosphere fresh inside Rescue One and also can replenish other ship's CO2 scrubber and oxygen.
Rescue One is currently stationed in orbit around EM…Read more >
Station One was the original space station constructed by Centari Spaceworks. It was located at the site of the original STA station and was constructed using parts from it.
The communication arm with the Voyager X antenna, and the two main docking ports point toward the home planet. This enables easy docking with resupply ships and a constant communication link.
The back side of the station contains the solar arrays and the fuel storage tank. It is also the docking point for the station's tug.
Resupply modules serve as station keeping engines. They are balanced along the station's center line to enable for easy adjustments. Keeping a station in balance was one of the lessons learned during the construction of this station.Read more >
Tentatively titled the Shuttle Space Station, this shuttle-based station has been designated "SSS" for NaviComp use. Assembled at the newly functional International Space Port (ISP), it was constructed around the recently retired shuttle Stardust.
The Stardust was docked at the ISP undergoing systems checks. It would be cleared for re-entry and it would return to HOM, and next it would be retired. Then the proposal for the SSS was put forth. The Stardust remained in space, in port, receiving basic repairs and a few simple upgrades as plans and designs were quickly approved.
The Stardust, or Shuttle Space Station (SSS), will travel towards the star closest to our solar system: the Proxima Centauri star system. It's heavily modified and upgraded engines wi…

Wealthy oil tycoon and germaphobe, Harold Hawkes, commissioned Centari Spaceworks to construct a small ship called the Hermit. Rumor has it that he plans to live out his life in the far reaches of the solar system away from the bacteria and germs on Earth.
To begin the construction of the Hermit, an ATV was launched with supplies including: water, food, and Harold's personal library of books. It was connected to an oxygen garden to supply atmosphere and additional food. A transponder module was added on for communication. Finally an Orion Capsule with Harold was launched and connected to the 3 modules already in Earth orbit.
Harold then left orbit, traveling first to KAT, the heading on to JOR where he plans to stay until earth is free of…

Centari Spaceworks has designed two new parts that enable the creation of more varied stations and ships: the 120° hub and the long hub. Hopefully our part supplier, Nooleus, will manufacture these parts soon.
The 120° hub enables the creation of hexagonal and angled stations. It has the same dimension as the standard hub. Instead of four ports at a 90°, it has 3 ports spaced at 120°. The larger spacing between ports means that it can fit all existing parts without modification.
The long hub provides a way to dock large modules side by side. Two standard hubs don't quite provide enough separation to dock small modules side by side. While possible it requires a slight overlap between the modules and docking must be done carefully via th…Read more >

Centari Spaceworks has developed a docking bay door. The door allows controlled access to an area of space. This can be used to protect space craft or deny them access to an area.
The doors are operated by undocking one of the two hubs on the bottom of the door. The force of the undocking provides the energy to move the door without requiring thruster propellent. However the station or ship should have station keeping engines ready because sometimes the impact from open or closing a door can cause the station to shift slightly.
The design of this door allows it to be extended to cover any size opening. It can be adjusted by adding or removing trusses.

The Big Gulp is a bigger and better fuel tanker ship. It has 6 fuel tanks , four more than compared to the Little Gulp.
The Big Gulp is equiped for long range voyages to refuel the most remote stations or ship. It has an Oxygen Garden to keep the crew supplied with air. The solar panels provide enough power for the ship (with the exception of the fuel tanks).
It handles remarkably well for a large ship. The ATV at the rear provides great rotational power. The LK Lander Core at the front aids with deceleration and can be used in combonation with the ATV to make lateral movements.Read more >
Today, Centauri Shipyards released two new ship designs, the Little Gulp, and the Pufferfish.
Both new ships are based on the AX2 platform that uses two ATV vehicles docked to a hub . A cupola is added for a cockpit and control area on one of the ATV This base configuration allows easy acceleration and deceleration of the ship. Cargo modules can be connected to the two other ports of the hub.
In the Little Gulp configuration, two fuel tanks are attached giving the vehicle a very long range and the ability to refuel other vehicles. The Pufferfish is designed for transporting O2 and CO2 scrubbers. The Voyager X bodies allow the cargo to be transported without being used by the crew of the Pufferfish.
Centauri Shipyards is also investigating …Read more >
The Sea Turtle is a 2nd generation large cargo ship produced by Centauri Ship Yards. It can carry 48 units of cargo. It also has space for 15 units of supplies for the crew (O2 tank, C02 scubbers and batteries).
The foward section of the ship houses the control room, communications, and an engine pod (LK Lander Core) to help with deceleration. The middle portion of the ship contains 6 cargo hold modules for transporting water or batteries. It also houses a lateral engine used for rotating and lateral manuvers. The aft section of the ship contains another engine pod, and fuel.
The Sea Turtle was build using parts from the decomissioned Squidward. Unlike the Squidward, it has good lateral mobility thanks to the engine that is positioned in …Read more >
The Squirt is a small cargo ship that is good for carrying water or batteries. It is based on an earlier design, The Starfish, which had only one hub. It has a capacity of 24 units of cargo for short trips. However it typically only carries 20 units of cargo and uses the other space for additional life support.
The engines on the ATV face opposite directions enabling The Squirt to accelerate and decelerate without having to rotate. It has very good control forward and back, but moving side to side introduces rotation. This is managable because the docking ports are located on the front and back limiting the need for side to side motion.
One ATV can also be detatched and used as a shuttle to transport cargo to stations. This eliminates…

The Squidward is a cargo ship.
The front half of the ship is the command room and two habitation modules for the crew. The 6 modules in the middle are the cargo holds. They ship can carry a total of 48 units of cargo
The solar panels on the rear can be used to charge the batteries, however they must be collapsed before the main engines can be used. Each of the LK Lander Core engines holds three batteries which power the ship.
The Squidward has a forward facing enging for deceleration. The LK
Lander Core engines provide decent rotation when used in side-to-side thrust mode.
The Squidward has poor lateral motion and needs to be assisted by a tug when docking.
Update: The Squidward is currently being scrapped to provide parts for other ship…Read more >

Community sandbox and player owned community sandboxes are becoming a thing now, I'm in :P
From here on I will make a new "local" sandbox with a station to be called The LSL or, local space labs, to be made by any user wanting to contribute.
There is also a slight design plan for the end product: A Four wing station with minor branching that may look semi-long in it's width.
Other than that, you are free to make anything you want on the station :)

Space Station Heisenberg: designation for NaviComp use has been assigned as "WKH", for it being named after German theoretical physicist Werner Karl Heisenberg.
Heisenberg is constructed of 68 modules and is considered a "non-moving" platform. Yet it utilizes a heavily modified LK Lander Core for both station-keeping and modest propulsion/mobility. Though not as maneuverable or speedy as other true movable vessels, it can change its location via its own propulsion system.
Heisenberg is equipped with one Pod for station maintenance and two Heavy Orion Craft for emergency evacuation. In case of a radioactive leak, the entire nuclear refining module can be jettisoned and destroyed with an attached micro-nuclear warhead.
Heisenberg's purpose is mine n…
