We are just playing our first game and there is a point with the re-entry which confuses me
In the advancement and the rules it states that a minor failure destroys the capsule but the occupants survive
But there is a footnote in the atmosperic enrty reference in the rulebook(p25) that states that if a capsule is damaged during re-enrty the astronauts inside are lost

So ,what exactly happens if a re-enrty outcome is a minor failure when testing re-entry with a manned capsule
Thank you in advance

Do you mean this footnote?
Quote:
If a capsule is destroyed during atmospheric entry, the astronauts inside are lost, as there is no time to switch to another capsule.
It says destroyed, not merely damaged.

In doubts like this intuition comes to the rescue. High speed, extreme temperature and other conditions. Do you think it matters if there is minor or major failure?

Look for Soyuz 11 story.


Edit: I was sure, minor failure is also entry. The real effect: "capsule damaged, occupants survive" is intuitive and not thematical... :-\ Re-entry (together with aerobraking) is one of the most dangerous situations.

So in the case of minor failure the astronaut survives.The damaged capsule is automatically repaired if in Earth or the mechanic can repair it if landed somewhere else (Venus, Mars)by spending a supply.Is this interpretation correct?

This is correct. A minor failure only damages the capsule, not destroys it. Keep in mind that a damaged capsule cannot provide life support.

It matters, look for Soyuz 5 story.

Fixed it just in case someone might forget this.

Quote:
The flight was also memorable for its dramatic re-entry. The craft's service module did not separate, so it entered the atmosphere nose-first, leaving cosmonaut Boris Volynov hanging by his restraining straps. As the craft aerobraked, the atmosphere burned through the module. But the craft righted itself before the escape hatch was burned through. Then, the parachute lines tangled and the landing rockets failed, resulting in a hard landing which broke Volynov's teeth.


His teeth...

This same thing just happened to me today.
Glad I found this. Still playing solo, till I feel comfortable to teach.
