NASA Orion Launch, Descent, and Launch abort simulator
12/9/2018

< Previous   Image 2 of 3      Next >

The simulator has actual recorded audio and video from the Orion space capsule launch and re-entry into Earth's atmosphere from Orion's first test flight (uncrewed), known as Exploration Flight Test 1 (EFT-1), which was launched atop a Delta IV Heavy  rocket on December 5, 2014. A third sim I experienced was a Launch Abort system deployment after liftoff. (Image courtesy of Loretta Taranovich)

What fun!
I'll bet that was a lot of fun!  It sounds a lot more realistic than the simulator on the carrier in Charleston, SC.  That one was a lot of fun, the kids really enjoyed it!  I'm envious for sure!
