Fly To Space

I just found the coolest flight simulator. If you’ve enjoyed playing with flight simulators, then you’ll love this one.

Are you tired of flying around in the atmosphere? Ready to experience flight beyond the reach of gravity? Of have you wanted to fly the Space Shuttle during re-entry? Well now you can. And the best part is, its FREE! That’s right, its free to download and play with. And, it gets the Lenwood stamp of approval! That doesn’t come too easily, you know.

Orbiter

I found out about it from one of the professors in my department. What’s cool about this simulator is that it was written by a bioengineer (Martin Schweiger). It really is a quality piece of software. It becomes even more impressive when you realize that it was developed by someone that presumably doesn’t specialize in orbital mechanics.
