Free lessons available from Europe’s Space Agency on how to dock one of their multi-ton ATV supply  spacecraft to the International Space Station. First thing you need is to download this Cortona 3D plugin, which offers some very smooth colour transitions all by itself which is rather cool. Then you can jump right into docking malfunctions and final approaches… although I believe it would be much more helpful to have a list of the more basic tasks, so that budding operators of the skies can learn the basics before they hit the deep end.
