ShuttleExciting Simulations has released today the new free Major Service Pack 4.0 for the Space Shuttle Mission 2007 simulator. This is the an exciting and significant development as it adds support for highly realistic R-BAR, TORVA, V-BAR and TORF procedures which are used for docking with the ISS.

This new Service Pack will test the skill, patience and perseverance of all virtual Astronauts as they are expected to dock the ISS using procedures very close to the ones used by the real NASA Astronauts.

Exciting Simulations has also released the updated "Commander's Reference Manual" version 3.5, to assist the virtual Astronauts with the new features.
