Simulations are mostly used in the military for weapons training and to train for certain events. Pilots also use simulations to practice their flight training without having to spend money on fuel and equipment. Simulations are also used for practicing events and to get a predicted outcome for something. For example, when NASA are planning on putting a rocket in space, they will use simulations to get a predicted outcome of what might happen. This is essential because it can potentially save lives and resources.
