Mission Control has just informed you everything's "nominal" as you approach the HAC. Suddenly, oboard cues indicate the speedbrake has failed to open. You realize immediate adjustments are required to achieve a successful landing. Will you be able to compensate in time? Experience the thrill of landing the Space Shuttle Columbia at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida! Take over the manual control at Mach 1 and glide the orbiter to a successful landing...but remember, you only get one chance!
Fly the most accurate simulation of Shuttle Guidance, Navigation, Control & Aerodynamics available. Apply working, realistic critical entry flight instruments and pilot aids. Experience detailed day and night visual scenes of the Cape Canaveral area from inside the orbiter or as a NASA "Chase Plane" pilot. Recreate the same unexpected approaches for which astronauts train thousands of hours. Listen to realistic cockpit and air-to-ground voice traffic. Relive your successes and failures with the postflight playback capability.
