Hi

I just bought Leaving earth and I'm about to start up my first try at the game.

Just one quick component question. I have all the big scientific advancements cards for rockets, Landing, life support and so on. Every tech card has some small cards that matches for assembling the spacecrafts - except the rendezvous tech. Are there supposed to be any of those? or can all my spacecrafts just rendezvous as long as I have bought the tech?

Sorry if this has been asked already. Checked the rules and the forum, but didn't see any thing that fittet the bill.

Thank you

Søren

Any two ships can rendezvous and dock and undock.

The thing to note about the non-component techs like landing, rendezvous, re-entry is that if a component lists a tech then you cannot build that component until you have that tech BUT the reverse is not true.

For example any ship can attempt to land, not just those that have components with the Landing tech on them like the Eagle. You can for example try to land a Vostok on the moon, but you will still have to overcome the manoeuvre requirement and have bought the Landing tech. It is quite common to land a probe.

Note with re-entry that all 4 manned capsules have notes about that hazard. Only Vostok and Apollo can re-enter safely of these four. However Probes and all the boosters etc can re-enter without any problem.
