Freefall (Orbit from WWDC 2004)

Was wondering if anyone remembered this software? You can see it on the WWDC 2004 video on youtube. Here is a snippet of the information for the product.
"Finally, Aran Anderson, President of Orbit (The actual company was Advanced Analytic), demonstrated what I thought was the coolest product of the bunch: a 200-times-faster-than-real-time satellite simulator that showed a 3D simulation of all non-classified satellites orbiting the earth, including networks between satellites, ground links, and coverage areas. Anderson noted that a few years ago, the calculations used by Orbit required a Defense Department supercomputer, but Orbit runs on a Power Mac G5. In a nod to OS X as a development platform, Anderson noted that he created Orbit in 3 months using Xcode on a PowerBook G4. (A free demonstration screensaver called Freefall will be available from Apple's website "soon.")"

I have version 2.0 and 2.1 beta if they want me to upload them I can.
