Check this out when you have decent bandwidth

A real stretch to fit this into the "destinations" forum, but nowhere else to put it and I thought it might be interesting due to the recent news.

My wife works for Analytical Graphics, a 3D modeling company that does a lot of work with NASA, aircraft companies, and others requiring space based simulations in 3D. AGI just created a couple of scenarios in STK (Satellite ToolKit) that show the US Airways crash and the IRIDIUM collision. They are pretty interesting so I wanted to send out the links in case any of you are interested in checking it out.

Here is a link to a video showing the Hudson River US Airways crash modeled in STK using a combination of simulated and Passur data: ... ation.html

Also, here is the link to showing what we have done to model the IRIDIUM-COSMOS collision: ... um-cosmos/
