Slowpoking in LEO

Ahhh .... Low Earth Orbit (LEO) ! Isn't it that cool? Orbiting around with the S-IVB for companion! Sure, landing on the moon will be pretty cool ... I suppose ... but for now, as I'm diving deeper and deeper in the details (maybe too much?) of this simulator while learning more about astronomy and the Apollo's hardware, I'm kinda stuck in LEO ... but only within Orbiter, 'cause thanks to Tom Hanks, I will be walking on the Moon 3D this very week-end ... at my local IMAX theatre :-) Stay tuned for some feedback on that show ... I just hope I won't experience motion sickness ... I'm usually pretty sensitive to that .. :(

I'd heard of Orbiter but never tried it. Probably because I crashed the shuttle about 40% of time with the Activision Space Shuttle for Atari 2600 back in the day. Love taking off and docking, hate landing! Still, I think it's time I tried another emulator and I am not dusting off that cartridge, so Orbiter it is! Wish me luck!
