Re: Astronomy C

My team's veteran astronomer is leaving and there is a posbility i will be replacing him. I am already doing air trajectory, invasives, electric vehicle, and dynamic planet. To a complete newcomer, how difficult would it be to go into this event and do well? Any advice?

Electric Vehicle 2015-2016

Does anyone have any hunches to what the changes will be to this event from the 2008 and 2009 versions?
Anyone think they will add a bonus of going around a can like in scrambler or changing the time specifications?

Re: Air Trajectory B/C

The device itself wasn't too consistent, but I tested it so much that I could predict reasonably well the adjustment needed to make the second shot perfect. The device I described wouldn't really be all that complex and since I have access to a 3D printer, I can make everything able to come apart w...
