Telemetry

‌The entiere Telemetry of the launch has been extracted using SpaceXTelemetry (program that i wrote, not open source now)

SXT reads data frame by frame and it uses the Optical Character Recognition (OCR) and sometimes this OCR could give wrong results because it isn't perfect, so some numbers are faked a little, with all the extracted data i started making comparisons and graphs

Predicted calculations predicted calculations done to the launch ( not everytime they are accurate)

  • Vertical speed file in CSV or JSON,

  • Horizontal speed file in CSV or JSON,

  • Downrange file in CSV or JSON,

  • Acceleration file in CSV or JSON,

  • Analysis file in CSV or JSON, (contains all the data above except the acceleration)

Graphs (they are avaible in the API)
