Let’s Try This Again
In a recent post I wrote about something of an adventure I had using the Orbiter 2006 space flight simulator.
I had set off from low Earth Orbit aboard the Discovery from 2001: A Space Odyssey on a flight to Jupiter. The trip, while technically successful because I did finally arrive in Jupiter orbit, was a spectacularly colossal failure because it took eight years and three months of simulation time to get there.
I’ve decided that I’m going to try again. This time I am going to dramatize it just a bit by posting excerpts from the captains log.
This way I don’t have to do the entire simulation in one four or five hour sitting, instead running it when I’m not occupied with other things.
It should be an interesting trip. A trip that I fully expect to take considerably less than a little over eight years.
