Create your own space mission. Create your character, choose your space vehicle, add technology to the vehicle, and launch to outer space. As you choose your destination, you are given choices of technology to use. A data screen scrolls information about what is learned and why certain technologies are used. Work through the screens to complete your mission. Want more? No problem. Start another mission immediately after ending the first one.

In the Classroom

Use during a unit of astronomy or space or before beginning the unit to gather information about space exploration. Nonreaders will need help with the text explanations. Use video clips and the vast array of other space exploration websites to continue your discussion. Introduce this site on your interactive whiteboard or projector. Turn the sound on and off with the small speaker icon, or use headphones for students navigating the site on their own!
