The Space Shuttle Mission Simulator ™ is the most exciting space shuttle simulator available today for Windows, designed to provide the experience and excitement of the NASA Space Shuttle missions in extreme detail.

Features:

  • Accurate and detailed 3D models of the Space Shuttle
  • Accurate 3D model of the International Space Station
  • Accurate 3D models of satellites and other mission-related objects
  • Beautifully rendered Space Shuttle 3D virtual cockpit and 3D sound effects
  • High-Resolution TrueEarth™ Global Satellite Imagery – licensed from TerraMetrics Inc. These are the same textures used by Google Earth.
  • Watch the countdown and Shuttle Launch from the place that few get to see it: the VIP spot at KSC.
  • Experience the Liftoff shakes and engines roar right from the Commander's or Pilot's seats.
  • Perform mission procedures: press buttons, rotate knobs, control and change General Purpose Computer modes and manually guide the Shuttle to a safe landing etc.
  • First Person View, including EVA – you cannot get any closer to the ISS or Hubble than that!
  • Third Person View and Free Camera View throughout the missions – watch the Space Shuttle and any space object from angles that even Astronauts never got to see.
  • Monitor the progress from the Mission Control Center
  • Multiple Astronauts login complete with personal Astronauts Achievements records and Multiple Mission Saves
  • Launch Control, Mission Control, Shuttle and Astronauts audio communications.
  • Three difficulty modes: from Novice which leads the "astronaut" through the tasks with context arrows and full text subtitles, to "Read the Manual and Checklists Commander!"
  • Documentation: "Quick Start" and "Commander's Reference Manual".
  • Variable-difficulty historical missions from STS-1 (the maiden flight) and up to the recent ones.
  • Expandable: we periodically release new missions and features, enhancing playability and sim life.
  • TrackIR(tm) Support in 3D Virtual Cockpit and first person view during EVA
  • Multiple Screens support for Matrox TripleHead2Go(tm) and Nvidia nView (tm)
  • Native support for Vuzix iWear VR920 Stereoscopic goggles + head tracking. This is the closest you can get to the NASA VR Labs where Shuttle Astronauts train for ISS missions.
