The APOLLO MISSION SIMULATOR is an in-depth simulation of a manned lunar exploration in the year 2010. This is NOT a game, it is a simulation. There are no points to score; either you survive your mission or you and your crew are space dust! In a typical mission, you begin in the Orbiting Laboratory, circling 150km above the lunar equator. Enter the landing vehicle, undock and perform several orbital maneuvers, then land on the moon. Explore the surface using a long-range mobile base and a short-range roving vehicle. A permanent fixed base is also included. Names and locations of over 300 lunar features are listed in one of the documents, each of which is actually in the simulation, so you can become familiar with real lunar geography. The APOLLO MISSION SIMULATOR is not "just another Lunar Lander." You participate in practically every aspect of a manned lunar exploration program. Set program goals, plan specific missions, and carry out those missions. Enough detail is provided so you can learn a great deal about lunar geography, orbital mechanics and physics in general.
Disk No: 987 Program Title: APOLLO MISSION SIMULATOR version 2.1 PC-SIG version: 1.1 The APOLLO MISSION SIMULATOR is an in-depth simulation of manned lunar exploration in the year 2010. In a typical mission, you begin in the Orbiting Laboratory, circling 150km above the lunar equator. You enter the Landing Vehicle, undock, and, after performing several orbital maneuvers, land on the Moon. After landing, you may explore the surface using a long-range Mobile Base and a short-range Roving Vehicle. A permanent fixed Base is also included in the lunar exploration infrastructure. Extensive documentation (109 pages) and tutorial lessons (over 5 hours) are provided to help you learn how to fly the Landing Vehicle and operate the Mobile Base and Roving Vehicle. Version 2.1 (compared with version 1.1) greatly expands the simulated lunar exploration infrastructure and increases the mission options available to the player. Names and locations of over 300 lunar features are listed in one of the documents, each of which is actually present in the simulation, so the player can become familiar with real lunar geography. The program has also been rewritten so it no longer requires a math coprocessor. The APOLLO MISSION SIMULATOR is "not just another Lunar Lander." It allows a player to participate in practically every aspect of a manned lunar exploration program. He can set program goals, plan specific missions, and carry out those missions in as much detail as he likes. Enough detail is provided so the player can learn a great deal about lunar geography, orbital mechanics, and physics in general. Usage: Mathematical/Entertainment. Special Requirements: None.
