Shouldn't electricity be measured in joules (J) / kilojoules (kJ)? And consumption in watts (W)? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Dan-K (talkcontribs)

Isn't Ah (Ampere hours) more common? — xZise [talk] 13:22, 31 July 2013 (CDT)
Although this is almost half a year old, I want to revisit my comment: Wh are way more common than Ah and the conversion factor between Ws and J is pretty easy. But I think J and W should be enough. There is only one problem, that it is not possible to measure if it is measured in Joules/Watts. Most of the other units can be verified. For example that the thrust is in kilonewton can be tested if you accelerate an object. As the mass and velocity have both units the acceleration and thrust have one as well. — xZise [talk] 14:19, 14 November 2013 (CST)

Reference to reaction wheels

I add reference to Inline Reaction Wheel, unfortunetly afaik there is no general page about reaction wheels, yet. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Trvtannenberg (talkcontribs)

You can create one, or maybe add something in SAS about that. But I wouldn't recommend a link á la [[Inline Reaction Wheel|reaction wheel]]. For example the RCS thrusters had a link named RCS fuel tank but it only linked to one specific fuel tank. It may be valid when there is only one fuel tank, but now we have five different types. And actually the IRW isn't the only reaction wheel part, as the Inline Advanced Stabilizer has also torque. — xZise [talk] 13:22, 31 July 2013 (CDT)
