Do you have the Right Stuff? Find out with Shuttle Dock. Test your piloting skills on the Space Shuttle Atlantis against a variety of spectacular backgrounds from Earth to Intergalactic Space. Use the maneuvering thrusters to dock the nose of the shuttle in the target crosshairs. The target will turn yellow when you are lined up correctly, and green after you have kept it steady for three seconds. While the levels get more difficult, expect surprises (like gravity) that challenge your abilities.
As you complete levels, you can earn increasing ranks! Start at Novice, step up to Cadet, then Specialist, Pilot, and finally Commander. Shuttle Dock will keep track of which levels you have completed and which ones are still on your list to beat.
When you have mastered the included levels (Earth and the International Space Station), you can purchase additional levels directly from the app.
Be the first to find out about new levels! Follow us on Twitter (@shuttledock) or Facebook (Shuttle Dock page - become a fan!).
All shuttle and space images are from NASA - thanks to all those who have dedicated their lives to learning about our universe!
