PROJECT DESCRIPTION

We’re developing a web-based game centered around NASA’s Psyche mission, allowing users to play educational mini-games related to the mission. Players will explore asteroid navigation, scientific instrument usage, and other aspects, gaining insights into the real-life objectives of the Psyche mission. Our goal is to provide an entertaining yet informative experience, making space exploration accessible to users of all ages through interactive gameplay and captivating visuals.
