This isnt spam or anything. I just want to see who would be interested and get any feed back people may have regarding this.

I am Kaimoni Sutton. I run an online Virtual Space agency. But before you go and say its childish, let me explain what we do and who we work with. My space agency called the Virtual United States Space Program has been in operation for about 3 years, REALISTICLY simulating space operations using a number of freeware programs which in my opinion should totally be payware. We have a few close ties to NASA as we work with a couple of its employees, and future employees, including people who are studying in the fields of aviation, nuclear physics and things of that nature. We also work with an aircraft design company that is currently doing business with the Boeing company (they are buying one of their designs i believe, but dont quote me on that just yet). They have designed us spacecraft that if build in real life, would fly, but for our purposes, they will be made for simulations using 'Orbiter', the space simulator program we use.

Over the past couple years we have simulated OVER 30 unmanned space missions. A vast majority of the missions were earth based, however, we have sent probes to study the sun, and the moon. We have sent our astronauts to the moon, and are working dilligently to send a manned crew to mars by 2005. We have set up a space station which assembly started on back in April of 03', and we are beginning our program to send men BACK to the moon in preparation for the mars missions (we need to test out our theories and ideas as well as test long duration mission, something like nasa is going to do in the imminent futute, except we beat them to the concept lol- we have been planning this for at least a year).

The VUSSP is a non-profit organization and we do teach everyone what they need to know to do thier jobs, whether they be a mission controller, an astronuat, or an director running a division. As i said we do train with nasa mission controllers so what we do is legit and real, to a point obviously. If anyone is interested in finding out more you can visit our website at http://www.vussp.com or leave a post here.

Here is an old picture of one of the spacecraft successfully launched on Saturday February 7, 2004 at 12 pm EST:

Heres another picture of a rocket launched prior to the one above:

Uhm, interesting... So, you actually simulate missions for different agencies to see if it may go as planned?

Nah. it would be cool if they came to us. The people who join it are just a bunch of space exploration enthusiats who get together to have some fun doing what we could only imagine of doing. And we have tons of fun. There are people in it of all ages 16 and up. At one point in time, we had an 80 year old guy join for a while. At the highest peak, we had a max of about 70 people. Not too bad if i say so myself.

:huh: hmmm... This seems lik an interesting endeavor. Your simulation programs take everything into effect that real space agencies face? If so do you have super computers running your simulations. If you did take EVERYTHING into effect your simulations would require a computing speed of almost billions of processes per second. But I will look into your program furthue befor I dis it. :rolleyes: I may find it more interesting that I expect! :o

:o Your website is intriguing but you seem to be at a dead hold right now and making no progress, and half your programs are on hold or not currently available. This is due to what if I may? :( Please expain more in depth what the role of members is and what thier duties and obligations are.

Hellllllooooo, is anyone there. There hasn't been a response in much to long. To the topic starter. Ignoring peoples questions isn't a good way to make people entusiastic.
