2015-04-17 – Preparing for Distribution

Alex: Most of my work week was dedicated to finishing up the SceneGraph restructuring work and integrating all changes that have happened in the meantime so that nothing is broken by my commits. After that, I started the work on a preliminary GUI application that we want to distribute alongside OpenSpace to enable control for the New Horizons encounters.

Anton: I have implemented a plane that the images taken by LORRI gets projected to at the time of capture at the position in space where the camera was aimed. This allows us to show stuff like the Europa rise from Jupiter as New Horizons saw it and outgassing of the planets and moons examined during the mission.
