World Space Week: The Sapce Game
The Advanced Concepts Team is organising in the framework of the World Space Week (Oct. 4-10) an on-line game for interplanetary trajectory design. Compete with other players around the world and find your way to Jupiter!!
The Space Game attempts to get people from all ages and backgrounds involved in the process of designing trajectories for an interplanetary mission. Through its interactive interface, the Space Game proposes a straightforward way to manually select parameters such as launch date and arrival date, thereby allowing for an entertaining way of designing different missions.
The final trajectories are ranked with respect to spacecraft propellant mass used. The game is to be played on-line in the week from Oct. 4-10, and the best scores will be displayed on our website at the end; the three best solutions will also be getting ESA goodies.
