It’s not the first time that NASA has collaborated with Vision Videogames to create an interactive game. NASA has previously worked with the developer Vision Videogames to create the Space Station Manager in 2005, SpaceStationSim. The studio lent the studio’s technical specifications and staff to build a 3D accurate version of the International Space Station. Some NASA employees also volunteered to be players in the beta test of the game.
Video games aren’t new to education. The Financial Times released The Climate Game (opens in a new tab) only earlier this year, requiring players to manage a nation’s economic growth and diversify sectors to move away from fossil fuels to achieve a zero-carbon economy in 2050. The interactive nature of video games is usually considered a valuable method to educate kids and families about real-world problems and the consequences of making tough choices.
If you’re looking to add space to your strategy game but want something a bit more complicated than the NASA-designed game for kids, check out Surviving Mars. If the meticulous industrial strategy is more your style, look into Factorio, which we believe is among the top PC strategies on the market.
Aizaz was the first person to get a byline on his blog on technology from his home in Bannu in 2017. Then, he went on to a career in breaking things professionally at my electric sparks which is where he eventually took over the kit as a hardware editor. Today, as the senior editor of hardware for my electric sparks, he spends time reporting about the most recent developments in the hardware industry and technology. If he's not reporting on hardware or electronics, you'll see him trying to be as remote from the world of technology as possible through camping in the wild.
