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! ;-)
