Which skill do I use to pilot a rocket pack. (p. 345) Which skill do I use to pilot a thruster pack. (also p. 345) I'm pretty sure I'd use the Freefall skill for a thruster pack. My reasoning for that is fairly convoluted, Vacsuit is a specialization of the freefall skill. I'm asumeing by vacsuit they meant the EVA pack that RL astronauts use in spacewalks. I'm thinking that the rocket pack would be covered by the Pilot: Spacecraft skill but I'm not sure about that so I thought I should put the question here. The museing that brought the question to mind is kind of interesting. The book says that the Rocketpack can reach Lunar orbit, Which means that it has a Delta V of 2.38km/second. That's [b]EIGHTY FIVE HUNDRED[/B] km per hour! The thought of buzzing over the Lunar surface at a couple thousand KPH in a jetpack makes me grin from ear-to-ear but it seems like a physical feat equal to riding a skateboard traveling at landspeed record velocities. Wrecking would suck alot. Venusan High divers are pussies compaired to Lunar Rocketpack racers.
