Designed to make the principles of Mathematics, Science and Human Endeavours in Space accessible and fun to children of all ages. This CD-ROM places the user as a young astronaut. With a team of Mission Specialists standing by to assist the investigation, and an array of specialised gadgets fitted into their your astronaut helmet to help interpret situations, they must navigate their way around the spacecraft.
Ages 8-12 years (Although Parents will want to time blaze, too!)
You, as a member of Space Station Alpha, are assigned to a top secret mission. You must board an alien spacecraft and investigate its origin, purpose and destination. Once on board the alien ship, you gather clues and interact with alien devices.
Learn how aeroplanes fly, spacewalk, investigate the Martian landscape, ensure that the order of the planets in the solar system is correct, construct a space station, check out the difference between stars and planets, appreciate the uniqueness of the Earth’s atmosphere, understand why humans couldn’t live anywhere else in the solar system. Appreciate why gravity might make you as heavy as an elephant on Jupiter whilst you would be able to dunk a basketball jump higher than a the baseball hoop on Pluto; watch the family of planets, each on their own elliptical path, orbit the sun. Experiment with rockets and boosters, fuselages and wing shapes.
