Orbiter - Space Flight Simulator

This looks cool ...

ORBITER is a free flight simulator that goes beyond the confines of Earth's atmosphere. Launch the Space Shuttle from Kennedy Space Center to deploy a satellite, rendezvous with the International Space Station or take the futuristic Delta-glider for a tour through the solar system - the choice is yours.

This is a simulator firmly based in physic and and reality, but a few bits of Sci-Fi sneak in.

Now all I need is TIME for another diversion! :-)

My old friend Matt brought this simulator to my attention when he posted pictures from it on Facebook. Matt and I used to spend a lot of time in a different sort of spacecraft simulation. ;-)

[Tip-O-The-Hat to my Old Buddy Matt!]

Matt adds (via Facebook):
"Happy to introduce another to it.  If you haven't found www.orbithangar.com, that's the best all-around repository for the stuff you'll need (there are lots of private stashes, too).  Great memories on that Asteroids clip! :D"

Yeah ... good times ... and a LOT of quarters! ;-)
