In this game, the player controls the spacecraft as it orbits (16) Psyche. They must aim a scanning ray that represents the spacecraft’s scientific instruments at veins of materials on the surface to scan them and record data about the composition of the asteroid.
This game is designed to be fun, educational, and accessible for anyone, but is especially aimed at elementary-school-age children.
