I've been poking around with some theoretical hypersonic drag equations and I'd like to see how they measure up to reality, but I don't have a hypersonic wind tunnel handy. So I was looking for telemetry data from the many capsule re-entries that we've done over the decades, but my googling hasn't turned up much of anything.
I need all the data: the mass, length, shape, and radius of the capsule, the position as a function of time, the altitude as a function of time, and so forth. I'm sure that should be published somewhere in a simple format but I've been out of luck so far. Any help?
For the discussion of the sciences. Physics problems, chemistry equations, biology weirdness, it all goes here.
