bot and cot

I'm slowing down a little more aggressively now to come down to a proper orbit speed. B is noticeably getting larger now, I should be in orbit on Sunday at around 11h13 Proxima Centauri B time.

I'm really glad that my TRS-80 (Model 16) is working out great to calculate the engine burns and guidance systems. I've got this clunker up on the dash of the golf cart on the passenger side, giving me a better view out the front on the driver side. I have a number of backup diskettes in case any one of the 'production' ones fails; these I've stored under the dash, beneath the TRS-80 in a radiation protective sleeve.
