July 2009 Paul L. Gleiser


Houston, Texas

They asked me if I am a "gamer", one who plays video games. "No, I'm a pilot though," I said. "Too bad." they said. "Gamers really do well on this." The "this" is a flight simulator for the Orion spacecraft. I was allowed to "dock" the Orion to the International Space Station. Flying in zero G with no atmosphere is an entirely different experience than flying an airplane through the air. I was able to dock successfully without bending any metal. But my flying did not result in a job offer.
