  1. Orbiter

    Orbiter is a freeware space flight simulator program developed to simulate spaceflight using realistic Newtonian physics. The simulator was first released on 27 November 2000, with the most recent of several versions 100830 released on 30 August 2010. Orbiter was developed by Dr. Martin Schweiger, a senior research fellow in the computer science department at University College London, who felt that space flight simulators at the time were lacking in realistic physics-based flight models, and decided to write a simulator that made learning physics concepts enjoyable. It has been used as a teaching aid in classrooms, and a community of addon developers have created a multitude of addons to allow users to fly assorted real and fictional spacecraft and add new planets or solar systems.
