    Re: Leg 57 results, question -- tutorial
    From: Ed Falk
    Date: 2000 May 08, 20:17 EDT

    Hi all; in the theory that the best way to learn something is to teach
    it, I have written up a web page that solves one of the Silicon Sea
    problems step-by-step, with diagrams and everything.
    I chose leg 57 as my example, mainly because I hadn't done that one
    yet.  You can view it at
            http://www.best.com/~falconer/Navigation/
    It's not polished yet, but I was wondering if folks could go take a
    look and let me know if I made any serious mistakes.  I'm particularly
    interested in dead reckoning, where the information presented is a
    little sketchy, and in my calculations for the LOP of the Moon, which
    were off by 17 miles.
    If I can polish this up, and if people think it's worthwhile, I can
    donate it to the navigation home page.
