Hi fellow wiki editors!

To help newly registered users get more familiar with the wiki (and maybe older users too) there is now a {{Welcome to the wiki}} template. Have a look at it and feel free to add it to new users discussion pages (and perhaps your own).

I have tried to keep the template short, but meaningful. /Johan G

NASA's Space Shuttle, officially called the Space Transportation System (STS), was the spacecraft used by the United States government for its human spaceflight missions until July, 2011.

Space Shuttle Enterprise is on display at the National Air and Space Museum.

Development status/Issues/Todo

Outside:

Cockpit:

  • 3d cockpit is not available

General:

  • Test HUD available with a lot of information for a orbit flight and returning to any base airport
  • Because the shuttle starting facility is not present now, we have to start up like a airplane and going to a pitch hold of 23 degree

New Version:

The new version of the Space Shuttle has now 3 main engines, 2 booster rockets, 5 orbit control engines (with reversers, makes control of 10 directions), 2 orbit manouver engines (pitchably for real manouver in orbit), braking parachute, smoke for all engines, robotarm, doors, launching satelit and a man in the dock. All animations are in MP-modus, full orbit manouver system to hold a stable orbit at 150.000-300.000 ft, mach 30, HUD with extra information, 2 versions for MP-modus (Columbia and Atlantis), light system, help menue, all sounds, new JSBSim FDM. Development by HerbyW.
