Exploring Strange New Worlds

Views: 1386

This activity is a simulation of the progression of missions employed by NASA to collect observations and research exoplanets orbiting distant stars. Participants become members of a research team that makes observations on three modeled alien worlds. The first observations are the simplest viewing at a distance and progressively collect more data by moving closer to the planets and using advanced technologies, until they ultimately collect a sample of the planet they are observing.
