Comment Saitek back in the day (Score 1) 69

I haven't done any flight sims since way back in the day (the market for them fell out over 10 years ago and things became stagnant). Long enough ago that HOTAS was still all keyboard/joystick port. But I do fondly remember using my Saitek setup. Looked and worked beautifully. My only complaint was that some games did not test with HOTAS so they keyboard emulation worked poorly, such as multi button press. The technology had become stagnant and all of the major sim game developers went bankrupt and got bought out.

If you could put a person into space, you could just as easily put your own station into space.

I think you are entirely unaware of how few manned space programs there are right now.

Heck, it took a ton of effort just to get spacecraft from different countries to be able to dock with each other during Soyuz-Apollo and Space Shuttle-Mir missions. Nobody in Russia, US, or India would even have the equipment to link up to a Chinese station.

As far as I know, India has not yet put any people into space. They are at the same level as SpaceX and Boeing. They have launched unmaned vehicles.

My guess is SpaceX will put a human into space long before India does.
