Hi! My name is Charles. I live in Illinois and have previously lived in Daytona Beach florida. I am a customer service representive for Caterpillar Inc. I love space flight and have been using Orbiter for 4 months. I know quite a bit about NASA thanks to my sister who works at Caneveral AFB. She has worked there for at least 20 years. I have a good but TRAGIC story.... She sent me a autographed picture of the crew of Challender and original mission patches and die cast toy replica's of the shuttle days before the disaster. I still have them in a safe place. I remember seeing it live on TV when it happened... I was little mabye about 4 watching the shuttle take off while playing with my toy shuttle when it happened... Ill never forget.

My real name is Samuel, and I love spaceflight. I have some really crazy but neat plans for the future and I can't wait to carry them out. I like people for the most part, although I really dislike backstabbing.

My name is Juan, I'm from Puerto Rico. Im 21, study Mechanical Engineering 4th year, and plan to work on the aerospace industry. I love learning anything from history to biology to pyisics to science in general. I also enjoy philosophy. Mainly I love life and Nature, and deeply enjoy knowing them better.

Some of my hobbies include listening to music, reading, 3d modeling, (Orbiteering), flying and building radio controlled airplanes and helicopters, and scuba diving. I also have always had the hobby of doing small engineering projects just for fun (such as my simpit http://www.angelfire.com/planet/orbitsim/Home.html ). Right now I'm building an electric mountainboard that will be controlled segway-style (shifting one's weight forward and backward).

Nice to meet you all.

Hi there, my real name is Jeff, I'm 13 years-old (turning 14 in less than 2 weeks) I enjoy building plastic, card, and paper models and making addons for orbiter. I'm also very good at electronics, and home economics, and anything else that has to do with making things, fixing things, etc. I'm currently grade 9, I have many friends (including here at the orbiter forums) I was born in the Philippines and came to Canada on June 23, 2003. And finally, I enjoy playing Flight Simulator X, and of coarse, Orbiter.

Smile Hello

My name is David Gonzalez. I was born and raised in New York City. I have a Bachelors of Technology in Electrical Engineering Tech from New York Institute of Technology. My interest cover a varied spectrum of topics such as Astronomy, Radio Astronomy, Electronics, Music composition, recording engineering, Art, Model Building
from scrap.Video games, Toy collecting (especially into Godzilla/Japans greatest contribution to humanity). I am using Orbiter for the first time, and I am quite impressed with the software. This must have been an painstaking,
sleepless effort for many a programmer. My Hats off to you all. I am especially interested in the Radio navigation capabilities of flight simulation systems such as ILS,VOR, Radio telemetry, and control. I find these subjects of prime interest here especially since I had worked as a radio systems technician for various companies in the past. I had continued to educate myself on the subject. Anything Radio....I have this dream of controlling a UAV orbital with an ASIMO robot in space to repair satellites in orbit. May happen, may not... It's a dream.

Hello, my name is Sebastian (24), I'm living in Muenster. My favorite videogame is Star Trek Bridge Commander (=STBC) where I add others and my own costom ships to fly them in space .

I have heared from Orbiter and I have the basic version somewere. I've looked in it and its very nice but much complicated to fly (STBC is easier there)....

Hey, i'm Stephen.

I was on the old forums under the same nickname as now. First discovered Orbiter about 5 years ago. Stopped playing about with it because of uni(Chemical Engineering) and now that i have 3 project deadlines approaching, naturally I've started playing it religiously again.

I have also become re-addicted as i noticed this morning when I was sitting in a traffic jam and wondered why my lateral RCS thrusters weren't working.

Uni is going fine although it is quite busy just now. I spend about 15 hours a day infront of a computer and i've been awake for 36 hours working pretty solidly on designing a fermentation system for my project but i'll launch a Mercury or Apollo capsule every now and then. XR-2 is amazing.

Default New here

hello im new here , haven't even downloaded orbiter yet but i love spaceflight, im a college student majoring in web design and i have some programing abilities, mainly in java, as i just learned it ... lol ... anyway ive also done alot of 3d modeling and have designed a few planes for Microsoft Combat flight simulator, so im interested in seeing how the program works and maybee working on some stuff , ive also done a bit of mapping in gtk radiant for quake 3 driven games, etc.
