    #thermal blankets   
    Interestingly, the white surfaces that don&39;t get as hot are covered by thermal blankets and a Nomex felt fabric that goes over wings and payload doors.

    #S-turn reentry path   
    The result is an S-turn reentry path. These S-turns are called roll reversals.

    #Titles for the pilot   
    Titles for the pilot - No pilot wants to be called a copilot, that&39;s just insulting!

    #Airline glide slope diagram   
    Airline glide slope diagram. A typical airliner flies a 3 degree glide slope at about 160 MPH. The typical descent rate is about 750 feet per minute.

    #fly with its landing gear down and engines reversed   
    To simulate how unaerodynamic the Space Shuttle is, the Gulfstream needs to fly with its landing gear down and engines reversed.

    #Diagram of Space Shuttle glide slope   
    Because of how unaerodynamic the Space Shuttle is, it uses a glide slope of 20 degrees flown at 345 MPH. The descent rate is over 10000 feet per minute. Diagram of Space Shuttle glide slope.

    #Space Shuttle is like skydiver in freefall   
    The descent rate of the Space Shuttle is roughly the same as terminal velocity of a skydiver. Space Shuttle is like skydiver in freefall

    #landing the Space Shuttle from the pilot's perspective   
    Video of landing the Space Shuttle from the pilot&39;s perspective. This is STS-115 flying Space Shuttle Atlantis.

How to land a Space Shuttle

Presented on Halloween (October 31st) at Stack Overflow�s 2016 Remote Meetup in Philadelphia. #PhillyCheeseStack If you want to try landing the shuttle for yourself for fun, try F-Sim http://www.f-sim.com/ (I have no affiliation... just a fan). Sorry about the autofocus (we disabled it in later talks). Me running around on stage didn't help. As always, send complaints to Steve. If you're interested in more details on reentry and landing, I also wrote an answer on Stack Exchange Aviation: http://aviation.stackexchange.com/questions/21981/how-does-the-space-shuttle-slow-down-on-the-re-entry-descent-and-landing/23889#23889 --- This was one of nine "Tiny Talks" given over three days at the meetup. Every year, employees submit Tiny Talk ideas on a wide range of topics (some completely random and not company-related at all, like this one) and we vote on which ones we want to hear. So, thank you to my coworkers for voting me in. Original proposal des
