Orbiter – your last, best time sink

In the wake of our conversation about the last mission to repair Hubble, John Bucsek sent us a link to Orbiter, a spaceflight simulator. A quick glance at the website reveals an app which realistically models the behavior of spacecraft, from liftoff to rendezvous to return. You can fly the Space Shuttle or the Deltaglider, which resembles the X-20 DynaSoar vehicle, proposed by the USAF as the next step after the X-15.

I’m not sure if I’m happy or sad that it’s a Windows-only app.
