Simulation was featured as a question on the 31 Oct 2014 segment of the Jeopardy television program!  The question posed to contestants was: "Invented in 1929, the Army Air Corps began using these to reduce airplane accidents"... the answer was "Flight simulator".  Unfortunately not one of the contestants got the answer correct.  I guess we still have some work to do to explain the power of simulation for training!
