missions.first.twitter # "https://twitter.com/IridiumBoss?lang=en"
missions.first.description # "In 2017, Iridium began launching Iridium NEXT, a second-generation worldwide network of telecommunications satellites, consisting of 66 active satellites, with another nine in-orbit spares and six on-ground spares. These satellites will incorporate features such as data transmission that were not emphasized in the original design. The constellation will provide L-band data speeds of up to 128 kbit/s to mobile terminals, up to 1.5 Mbit/s to Iridium Pilot marine terminals, and high-speed Ka-band service of up to 8 Mbit/s to fixed/transportable terminals. The next-generation terminals and service are expected to be commercially available by the end of 2018. However, Iridium's proposed use of its next-generation satellites has raised concerns the service will harmfully interfere with GPS devices. The satellites will incorporate a secondary payload for Aireon, a space-qualified ADS-B data receiver. This is for use by air traffic control and, via FlightAware, for use by airlines. A tertiary payload on 58 satellites is a marine AIS ship-tracker receiver, for Canadian company exactEarth Ltd. Iridium can also be used to provide a data link to other satellites in space, enabling command and control of other space assets regardless of the position of ground stations and gateways."

Ships

  • Get information for all ships: SPACEX::Ships.info
  • Get information about a specific ship: SPACEX::Ships.info('ship_id')

The following code shows how to get information about a specific ship and lists the ship data fields:

ship = SPACEX::Ships.info('AMERICANCHAMPION')

ship.ship_id # 'AMERICANCHAMPION'
ship.ship_name # 'American Champion'
ship.ship_model # nil
ship.ship_type # 'Tug'
ship.roles # ['Support Ship', 'Barge Tug']
ship.active # false
ship.imo # 7_434_016
ship.mmsi # 367_020_820
ship.abs # 571_252
ship.ship_class # 7_604_342 # Call as array since "class" is a method in Ruby
ship.weight_lbs # 588_000
ship.weight_kg # 266_712
ship.year_built # 1976
ship.home_port # 'Port of Los Angeles'
ship.status # 'Stopped'
ship.speed_kn # 0
ship.course_deg # nil
ship.position # ({ 'latitude' => 30.52852, 'longitude' => -88.09869 })
ship.successful_landings # nil
ship.attempted_landings # nil
ship.missions # [{ 'flight' => 7, 'name' => 'COTS 1' }, { 'flight' => 8, 'name' => 'COTS 2' }]
