That's a really nice compilation.  I was going to complain about the lack of citations for all the data until I scrolled down to the bottom.  It's very extensive.

...I posted the link to this several years ago to sci.space.history. It's essentially a support, research and inspiration page for those designing addons for Orbiter. The real surprises at the time was that they actually cited sources, and it wasn't just ripped off en masse from Mark Wade's site.
