Orbiter Space Flight Simulator 2006P1 / 2010P1.
At the outset of the project and the first version of the simulator, Martin Schweiger, its current successful and made possible thanks to a community of programmers
/ developers / optimizers / beta testers (among other users as Microsoft ... ... lol) thank you again for all the work done and future.
The most successful of space flight simulator, created and developed by Martin Schweiger, this simulator allows you to simulate all missions you want, be it the launch of the shuttle Atlantis in a mission or exploration of the solar system.
The simulator is an open source program, which allows many developers to the Orbiter community, to live virtually the best space adventure, thank you to them (are be quoted individually in my links).
Some add-on's "Home Made" are available on my download page.
Orbiter 2006P1 / 2010P1, which I have mounted and optimized in several versions: a "Full", with the best web addon's, and a "Edu" with only flights and historical
Orbiter is a Space Flight Simulator, in fact, is the first and most successful, realistic and comprehensive currently in existence. It allows you to drive a wide variety of spacecraft, travel a space without end, a module "WARP"(included in "Full" vers.) and active in some futuristic or science-fiction vessel's, it allows you to browse the entire universe at the various speed, for example: 1X (actual) at 1000X of light speed (ie 300'000'000km / s. .. hang your seatbelt) or of the slogan that will appear on the top banner on my site:
"Orbiter SFS 2010P1: higher, faster, farther".
This is not a joke, this simulator has no limits as all other simulators currently on the market, this is explained partly by the fact that it is still evolving, programmers are working on developing other planetary systems and stellar objects, new vessels, new missions and so on ... . new addon's every week, come gradually complete the simulator.
You will (after a laborious checklist's, warm the printer manuals... Be prepared to invest some time and effort to brush up on
your orbital mechanics background) you have the pleasure (deserved) to make exciting space missions and programs of agencies (NASA / ESA / JAXA / RFSC etc.
..) or the first V2 rocket launch to re-live at the first moment of the space history, or future missions to explore our solar system, everything is there, the space simulation adventures in-vivo via simulator is now possible. Has you explore the universe if recommended to use the "WARP" (speed of
light accelerator in "Full" version) because if your life ... is not enough to finalize your trip at the final
destination... lol :-).
- Launch the first satellite in history: the Sputnik 1, Incarnating (virtually) the first man in space: Yuri Gagarin, the first man on the Moon: Neil Armstrong.
- Find the legendary vessels such as capsules Vostok, Gemini, Mercury, Apollo missions, the shuttle Columbia, Atlantis, Endeavor, Challenger, Buran, Hermes, and other futuristic ("Edu" version), some with 3D cockpit controls and gauges active. Good resolutions graphics, realistic effects, are based on actual recordings, ATC, assisted navigation, autopilot, your add-ons for various missions and space adventure.
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. But make no mistake - ORBITER is not a space shooter. The emphasis is firmly on realism, and the learning curve can be steep. Be prepared to invest some time and effort to brush up on your orbital mechanics background. Good starting points are JPL's Basics of Space Flight: http://www.jpl.nasa.gov/basics/ and R. Braeunig's Rocket & Space Technology: http://www.braeunig.us/space/index.htm

A big thank you to Greg Baumont, musician-songwriter-DJ, for allowing me to broadcast its music on the player of the site.
