Simulator
« on: August 23, 2017, 11:33:40 AM »

BIS Italia have been working on a Soyuz simulator, where you can test out your skills at docking with the ISS from the comfort of an armchair. They're hoping to bring it to the UK this autumn, and it's already been popular with the public and schools. Contact fbernadini if you've got software development skills and would like to help out.

See more information on the simulator thread on the BIS News board,hopefully when we have more than one person fully up to speed it will possibly be in operation before evening lectures.

It was at the New Scientist Live festival, and we hope to see it in action again soon. Before evening lectures would be great, Les.
