I've looked at STS Orbit Plus, and while it is very good, I suspect that what you typically see up on the big screen in the flight control rooms on NASA TV with the very detailed 3d graphics is proprietary to NASA. I have visited JSC in Houston and the Tour is very good if you get a chance to take it. If there is not a flight in progress you get to sit in a viewing room overlooking one of the new mission control rooms.
Another excellent software choice for satellite tracking is InstantTrack, available to AMSAT members. Look at http://www.amsat.org/amsat/catalog/software.html#it .
