International Space Station Orbit Tracker and Pointer — Practical Engineering
There’s a growing movement of people who believe that our space agencies
are underfunded and that humanity isn’t paying enough attention to our
present accomplishments and future plans in space exploration. Well, I know
one way to direct attention to something: Point at it.

Welcome! — PyEphem home page
PyEphem provides scientific-grade astronomical computations for the Python programming language. Given a date and location on the Earth’s surface, it can compute the positions of the Sun and Moon, of the planets and their moons, and of any asteroids, comets, or earth satellites whose orbital elements the user can provide.

ARTEMIS | Spaceship Bridge Simulator
Artemis is a multiplayer, multi-computer networked game for Windows computers.

Artemis simulates a spaceship bridge by networking several computers together. One computer runs the simulation and the "main screen", while the others serve as workstations for the normal jobs a bridge officer might do, like Helm, Communication, Engineering, and Weapon Control.

Artemis is a social game where several players are together in one room ("bridge") , and while they all work together, one player plays the Captain, a person who sits in the middle, doesn't have a workstation, and tells everyone what to do.

iTunes - TV Programmes - When We Left Earth - The NASA Missions, Season 1
From the early quest of the Mercury program to put a man in space, to the historic moon landings, through the Soyuz link up, and the first un-tethered space walk by Bruce McCandless, When We Left the Earth is the incredible story of humankind's greatest adventures, as they happened, told by the people who were there. Featured in the series is never-before-seen footage from NASA's secret film vaults, digitally remastered into stunning quality.

iTunes - TV Programmes - Moon Machines, Season 1
Forty years after man's first steps on the lunar surface, reaching the Moon is still a metaphor for an impossible journey. But while the astronauts who walked on the Moon became household names, the creators of the machines that made those journeys possible have been largely forgotten. Yet, from the impossibly gigantic Saturn V rocket to the fragile “tissue paper” lunar lander, the stories of these miracles of engineering are every bit as extraordinary as those of the men who flew them.

Build Your Own NASA Apollo Landing Computer (no kidding) - Space & Sci-Fi Blog - Galaxiki, the Sci-Fi Galaxy that anyone can edit
Would you like to own the computer Neil Armstrong used to land on the moon in 1969? Well, that's possible now, because a geek named John Pultorak created a working reproduction of the Apollo Guidance Computer (AGC), wrote a complete manual that will allow you to build your own Apollo flight computer clone and released it in the puclic domain.

Virtual AGC Home Page
The purpose of this project is to provide a computer simulation of the onboard guidance computers used in the Apollo Program's lunar missions, and to generally allow you to learn about these guidance computers. Since this can be quite intimidating, we invite you to look at our "kinder and gentler" introductory page before immersing yourself in the full, gory detail presented by the bulk of the website.
