Since August 2016, content has been produced to give Orbital Velocity a basic functionality. Currently, about two blog posts are produced a week and content has been created for spacecraft that currently service the International Space Station.
In 2017, while various visiting vehicle pages will continue to be expanded, more topics will be added, such as space station module descriptions and overviews of past expeditions.
As Orbital Velocity gains more funding, more people will be brought on to help produce even more content at a faster rate. If you like what you see here and want to contribute financially, visit the Orbital Velocity Patreon page. If you can, give whatever you feel is fair. Any amount helps.
If you can't contribute with dollars, but have ideas or skills and are interested in helping produce content, visit the About page and send a message.
