Have you played "Kerbal Space Program" on the PC? This is the nearest I've come to understanding orbital mechanics and rocketry. I know its physics have been simplified but I believe its a good basic model? I understand the game was made by a Mexican development team who had no experience in the area. Can you recommend any educational software? Did or do you play computer games?
