about  A colorful picture book about humans going to Mars, how they might realistically go about this, and where this might lead in the future. The missions were simulated with specially developed add-ons in the freeware Orbiter space flight simulator, and most of the graphics are screen captures from Orbiter, though some are real photos from NASA. Intended for ages 10 to adult, the book includes an appendix with details for each page, including information on the add-ons used in Orbiter to create the images. - Space

about  I think Orbiter should really be flown in a dark room up close to a big monitor. It's like looking out the window of the Shuttle, with Bach, Strauss, and Ravel cycling in the background. - Space - Reviews

"Here are some Apollo 14 pics from a tutorial on recreating Apollo missions. The craft is a few years old now but still cool (the look is still much the same - I downloaded a lot of the Apollo stuff but have not tried any yet, as I'm still trying to achieve the orbit I want and maneuver with thrusters).

The addon people for this thing are maniacs, and the Forum is the one of the most multinational I have ever seen -- 12 year old kids in India to retired USAF guys in Colorado to all sorts of people around Europe, some Australia, etc.

about  Chino said: " I spent about 20 minutes talking with the young pilot seated on the well-armed jet in this picture. He got a B.S. in aeronautical science at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University (Florida), getting his civilian ratings up to CFII in the process (all single props). Then he applied to the Mass. Air National Guard to be an F-15 pilot.

They sent him for 2 years of USAF training (T-37, T-38, F-15), and he has been flying the F-15 in Cape Cod for one year now. The lucky stiff!

He said one thing that made me feel a little good. He spent a lot of time with F-15 by Janes Combat Simulations before he went to USAF/MANG. He said that before his real F-15 training, he had never survived more than 5 minutes at full realism in the sim. After he started real F-15 training, it finally all made sense, and he started to do great."
