This is a list of tasks. Feel free to add something you want to be checked/done and others can then claim those.

To avoid that multiple people work at the same time at the same task you should claim tasks by answering to them. Also answer to a task to remove your claim if you aren't working on it anymore and want others to finish the task.

Add a new task

Name change in Rockomax Mark 55 Radial Mount Liquid Engine

The name in the description changed in Rockomax Mark 55 Radial Mount Liquid Engine. Please determine in which version that was done and update the related pages (Rockomax Mark 55 Radial Mount Liquid Engine and Eumon Kerman) respectively and maybe create Eugene Kerman (or request a move of Eumon to Eugene Kerman).

Dynamically calculate orbital periods

The orbital periods of {{Celestial period table}} are currently statically written, but it should be possible via {{Body data}} to get most if not all data on each row dynamically. See also Template talk:Celestial period table#Dynamically calculate. — xZise [talk] 06:18, 3 March 2015 (CST)

Hmm to be honest, it would've been easier when there is just one row template and each body is using it. — xZise [talk] 09:23, 5 March 2015 (CST)

For .svg mages

Creating the more informative .svg version of some picture:

Make the texts correctable!

For "Orbit_Synchronization_how_to.png" - pictures by stages of the maneuver would be more preferable!

Note that the third image is already a vector graphic. The question is also how you could make it more informative? Maybe make clearer that it's a top down view. — xZise [talk] 09:23, 5 March 2015 (CST)
Making the shape more similar to an air-plane (and not has to explain what it is)...NWM (talk) 17:31, 5 March 2015 (CST)
The text is baked in, and it's a bit plain looking. But the license is Public Domain, so this NASA image can be edited and reused here.

Rocket engine "family photo"

The old "Reaction engine" article is moving to Rocket engine. It's had the same old v0.17 LV-T30 engine image since... long ago. It would be nice to arrange all the non-aspirated engines together on the Launch Pad -- liquid fuel, SRB, RCS, and ion -- and take a "family photo". Maybe with Jeb, if he can manage not to break anything. Currently I'm without a gaming computer, and I was sad to find I don't have the screenshot I'd previously taken. But there are new engines since then anyway! --Brendan (talk) 15:10, 5 March 2015 (CST)

Just a note: Ion engine is not rocket engine.NWM (talk) 17:31, 5 March 2015 (CST)
Looking into it, they satisfy the requirement of using only onboard propellant, but I'd overlooked that rocket engines are jet engines -- they form a high-speed jet of exhaust gases. KSP's ion engines might get a pass, but the Hall-effect thrusters they're modelled on emit ionized xenon gas, but don't form a jet. Fascinating. --Brendan (talk) 18:15, 5 March 2015 (CST)
The definitions changes even by countries. The simple automatic replacing arm is "robot" in Japan, but not in US. And simply, I don't know any country where ion engine (+atom rocket motor) is rocket engine.
