Orbital context (default RSW placement)

Plots are in GSE (geocentric solar ecliptic) coordinates, so Earth is at [0,0], the Sun is at [1,0]. The plot is the projection of the orbit on the ecliptic plane.

New proposal for the grey shading representing downlink rates:

  • white = maximum downlink rate at which you can empty the SSMM in ~10 days
  • light-grey = empties with everyone operating 
  • mid-grey = fills within RSW (10 instruments operating) and empties outside RSW (IS-only breakeven rate < downlink rate < inside-RSW breakeven rate )
  • dark-grey = fills with just IS operating (downlink rate < IS-only breakeven rate)
