I once landed the shuttle with commander status when I was 12 years old, only after many attemps but I didnt have my Polaroid by my side that moment. It introduced me to the new Columbia Space Shuttle and its stuffs. It's very great simulator game and I still have the original cartridge, panel, and flight manual. Recently watched Steve's video and I became a programmer now after inspired by Atari:)

Brilliant game! Can you believe they fir the whole thing into 4K? Back in 1983, when I thought the shuttle was way cool, this game allowed me to enjoy a little wish fulfillment. Sure, the game was very complicated, but that was part of the fun. That's what helped make it so immersive.
Sadly, the game doesn't run on a 7800, so far as I can tell, because the switches are different. I guess I'll never beat my score of "Mission Specialist".

Other versions with a different title:
Space Shutle, Space Shuttle, Space Shuttle - Eine Reise ins All.
Was sold with Flight Deck Console overlays.
The SECAM version of Space Shuttle displays the word VIT on screen. This is short for 'vitesse', which means 'speed' in French.
There is a special screen display if you manage to dock 6 times with the satellite with at least 7,500 units of fuel remaining. The message on-screen reads: WELCOME HOME
Two versions exist. Some NTSC carts were released that use the FE bank-switching method, instead of F8. The PAL version also uses FE.
