Hi there every one,

well sence there already a docking post just add my 2 cents, well for the first time I did my docking with the iss for the first time on sts-96, I dont have any pics but it was quite the experaince but I was able to pull it off of the first time.

I made a few mistakes (like comeing in to hot) but I corrected my veloceity and slowed way down just in time to get a great caputre. it was fun. and after I was docked it felt good that I was able to do it and I was excited to.  Grin

Yes, the satisfaction of performing your first docking is really worth the patience, practice and hours you invested in mastering the sim. Have lot of fun!

well thank u Admin, I didnt think I was able to do it the verry first time after I drifted away from the ISS but after I relized that, I gave just a little to much thrust and had a lot of vlocity but at about 100 from the pma I was able to slow down and correct just in time and the it capured and the docking began. and I couldnt belive it, I did it.

STS-100 is technically my 3rd docking with ISS, but I think this is the first mission that requires the full TORVA procedure. The ADPS got capture and I was really pleased to get a "perfect" docking congratulations message.

I really love the way the STS missions and the sim gradually teaches you each of the required skills in turn. I remember being stuck on a rendevous and howto use the LOS properly. Now I've got the approach down to a tea. The previous ISS dockings were a bit of a cheat due to the "straight-in below" approach. I was really worried about how to pull off the TORVA as I got to the 600ft mark, but just assumed it would work the same as a quarter of a flyaround... To my surprise, it was just that simple!!  Grin

Just wanted to write up my experience of my first "proper" experience. I know you vets have done this so many times its probably mundane, but I gotta take my space helmet off to GC for such a wonderful sim.
