    General Question SpaceX has inspired me to try Orbiter

    Is there an MFD which simulates all the automation of the capsule, because all the flying was on auto-pilot? I think most of the flying in orbiter is pretty manual?

    Question Crew Dragon demo-2 mission

    Crew Dragon simpit?

    A thought came to mind, the Crew Dragon is actually very easy to build, as it's only touchscreen .. no overhead, few buttons, joystick etc. The only problem is the touchscreen interface is not simulated in Orbiter. Anyone going to attempt it?

    Discussion The next humans on the Moon & Mars shouldn't be Americans

    IMO it should be an international crew made up of Americans, Europeans, Russians etc. In a world already fractured, a multi-national effort will let the whole of humanity cheer the mission on. Putting humans on Mars should not be the job of 1 nation. I wonder if the manned Moon and Mars landings...

    Anyone watching this TV show? On today they visited the German Aerospace Center and used a PC simulator to dock the Soyuz with the ISS. Was wondring what sim it is? They used 2 very nice joysticks which has given me the idea of putting them in orbiter!

    IMFD Automatic finding of values?

    I'm not a programmer, but instead of finding the dv values manually to make the closest approach, surely this is the perfect task for a computer? A computer can just loop trough all the values?

    Hardware Can Orbiter scale?

    Could Orbiter use up multiple CPU cores and lots of RAM to get more accurate calucations? Say if I can a bladecenter lying around it would be awesome to run Orbiter on it and get amazing accuracy.
