ISDC Presentation Done
This weekend I finally did the PowerPoint for my presentation at ISDC 2007 in Dallas, coming up in just a couple of weeks. The talk is in the Sunday afternoon education track and is called "Playing in Space: Interactive Education with the Orbiter Space Flight Simulator." It introduces Orbiter and then gives several specific examples of how Orbiter can be used in the classroom. Thanks to a cancellation, I learned that I will have 50 minutes for my presentation, so I plan to show some live Orbiter demonstrations and make it sort of a mini-tutorial. Most of the graphics were things I've had around, but I did create a couple of new ones, including this shot of the Firefly from the movie Serenity. It's a weird spacecraft but a very detailed Orbiter add-on by Jon Marcure and Shawn Beard.
