My Satellite Setup
No satellite stuff for the moment (aside from a 43cm minidish that was on the house already), Samsung SyncMaster T27B550 Smart TV & Monitor, and a few computers...
My Location
Near Pontop Pike, Co. Durham
Now this is a game I'm well and truly addicted to, the objective, explore space, simple as that (missions may come up later as the game is still being developed), but, you can do pretty much anything you want with the game as it is, from putting satellites in orbit (to keep the theme of the forum!!!) around the planet Kerbin, to travelling beyond the Kerbol system into deep space...

You pilot rockets that you can build to your own design (and when I say pilot, I mean if you're lucky enough that it doesn't just blow up on the launchpad!!), taking the little derpy green fellas known as Kerbals into space, they're thick as pig poo so they need a hand with their space travel, and you can send up lunar landers, moon buggies, and all kinds of other things that you can create, it really is a fun game, it's a time vampire though, you'll spend a lot longer playing it (if you do start!!) than you expect to, it's just so addictive and really gets the brain working as to how to navigate in space and how to land safely without killing your Kerbal crew...

Well worth a look if you're into space flight simulation, it's not 100% accurate, but a very close approximation, and even includes tutorials for re-enacting historic space missions from our blue & green marble, definitely interesting for those who are interested in space... :)
