Start learning about space

Let's build our own space mission!

Before we head to distant planets, humans must learn about space and how to survive in it. How do we deal with extreme temperatures, lack of air and meteorites? We can find out by setting up a moon community. Help us learn by designing your own moon camp or rocket!

Test your knowledge with our space game!

Fly me to the moon: design your own rocket

How do you get to the moon? By rocket, of course! But how can it break through the Earth’s atmosphere or reach its destination? Build your rocket’s components and customise your work. Then think about how far you need to go – and how you’ll land when you get there!

Architect to the stars: build your house on the moon

Your home away from Earth has to be more than a place to eat and sleep – it’s the only structure on the moon! How and where do you even build it? Customise, name and expand your new home, and ask yourself: how will it answer the needs of your moon community?

Moon life 101: how to survive on the moon

With no atmosphere and no air on the moon, you’ll need a way to breathe! Though houseplants and algae could generate enough oxygen inside your moon pod, you’re still on your own when outside. Design your own space helmet and get creative: who will have the best looking helmet?

Lunar road trip: working 9 to 5 on the moon

The bumpy and unpredictable terrain of the moon’s surface requires rugged vehicles for commuting, cargo transport and exploration – and helper robots will need sturdy construction, too. Design your own Moon Ranger and purpose-build it for any mission you can imagine!
