Orbiter 2010 pick
Software Product Description
A free, realistic flight simulator that goes beyond the confines of Earth´s atmosphere.Orbiter is a free, realistic flight simulator that goes beyond the confines of Earth´s atmosphere. Launch the Space Shuttle from Kennedy Space Center to deploy a satellite, rendezvous with the International Space Station or take the futuristic Delta-glider for a tour through the solar system - the choice is yours.
But make no mistake - ORBITER is not a space shooter. The emphasis is firmly on realism, and the learning curve can be steep. Be prepared to invest some time and effort to brush up on your orbital mechanics background.

Pros: Very well done in all aspects.
Cons: The only down side is it will take some time for new users to master the controls. Not that the controls are rough or hard to use, but there are a great number of controls. Don't get me wrong, once you have taken the time to get the feel for this amazing space flight sim you will have alot of fun with it.
Other Thoughts: The graphics of this are simply amazing. All flight models are extremly well done. Inside each craft there is an array of displays for almost any guage needed for spaceflight. The controls will take some time to master, but once you've done that this space flight sim will keep you occupied, and interested, for long periods.
