I think I will GO FLY A SPACESHIP!!
Did you ever wonder what it would be like to pilot your own spacecraft? Working in pilot/copilot teams you will train to fly a realistic mission into Earth orbit, rendezvous with the International Space Station, and return safely home in time for supper. Advanced topics may include missions to the Moon and Mars (the sky is the limit, after all).
Students will fly their missions using Martin Schweiger's free Orbiter Space Flight Simulator
Along the way you will learn the basics of rocket physics and orbital mechanics. This MI will require many hours of intense concentration in a darkened room, staring at a computer screen: YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!
Please read the Orbital Operations Manual to satisfy the reading requirement for this course.
I also recommend Maelstrom II, a short story by Arthur C. Clarke, which can be found in his anthology: The Wind From the Sun. I have a copy of this book at my desk in the Math Resource Center. Please drop by to borrow it!
