Outstanding effort here, to whoever's done this.  I've had so much fun with it the past few days.

I have a query about the dashboard.
After the TEI burn, the velocity stats are markedly different from what the PA is reporting.
Also the craft seems to still be accelerating after the burn has finished.
Sorry, should have mentioned this is the Apollo 11 stream.

Is the velocity on the dashboard just an illustration, or is there a parameter missing?

Sorry for the super long delay. Somehow I missed your message.
The numbers are always Earth referenced in the dashboard. The TEI burn doesn't contain the velocity changes because they weren't being announced by the PAO--the Apollo in Real Time team didn't have any mission telemetry streams to work with as that data was all discarded after the mission.
