We’re developing an immersive 3D web experience accessed via QR code, aimed at educating users about NASA’s Psyche mission. Users can explore mission details through the guidance of Psyche Bot and interactive gameplay, including assembling the spacecraft and gathering facts about asteroids and spacecraft. Additionally, a notebook feature enables users to revisit and review their discoveries. Upon completion, users receive a certificate directing them to the official Psyche website, encouraging further exploration of the psyche mission.
