Overview
Orbiter is a real-time space flight simulation for Windows PCplatforms.Modelling of atmospheric flight (launch and reentry),suborbital, orbital and interplanetary missions (rendezvous,docking, transfer, swing-by etc.)Newtonian mechanics, rigid body model of rotation, basicatmospheric flight model.Planet positions from public perturbation solutions. Timeintegration of state vectors or osculating elements.Developed since 2000 as an educational and recreationalapplication for orbital mechanics simulation.Written in C++, using DirectX for 3-D rendering. Publicprogramming interface for development of external moduleplugins.With an increasingly versatile API, development focus isbeginning to shift from the Orbiter core to 3
