Videos: Flying Simulated Suborbital Flights at NASTAR
Video: Cockpit screen view: NASTAR SpaceShip Two Centrifuge Simulation of 100% Acceleration Profile
This video is from a 11 May 2011 centrifuge run at the NASTAR center with SwRI scientist Cathy Olkin in the cockpit. The view simulates what one would see on a suborbital flight profile aboard Virgin Galactic’s SpaceShip Two. These centrifuge rides are an integral feature of the NASTAR Center’s suborbital scientist astronaut training program.
