NASA’s MoonBase Alpha

In this week’s reading from Edge, it talks about a STEM-education-related game being developed for NASA. They also mention that part of the game, MoonBase, is available on Steam. I did a quick search and turns out it is!

I haven’t been able to download it yet (I rarely boot my MacBook Pro into Windows and the game isn’t available for Mac yet) but if you get a chance you should check it out and let us know how it is!

Tired of the same old planet? Give it a makeover!

From the good folks at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (don’t bother them when The Big Bang Theory is on) comes this: The Extreme Planet Makeover!

Is it a game? Not really, more of a simulation. But interesting nonetheless.
