ISS Docking Simulator

Imagesource: https://iss-sim.spacex.com/

Who didn't want to be an astronaut as a kid? Well, I mean after fireman and policeman. For me, astronaut always came first, but then a few things in my life just came between me and the ESA and what can I say ... today I at least dock a SpaceX transporter to the ISS from time to time 👨🏻‍🚀.

The simulator from SpaceX is anything but new, but somehow it landed on my plate again around Christmas, and as an absolute space nerd, the thing had to be included in our recommendations here as well.

The ISS Docking Simulator runs in every modern browser. And don't be mistaken, the whole thing is much more difficult than it might seem, and it doesn't even involve real orbital mechanics.

Challenge accepted.
