Comet Quest

National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA)

Description

We are excited to announce another free National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) iPhone/iPad game created by the Space Place team. 

Learn about comets and the Rosetta mission while playing the fast-moving, immersive action game “Comet Quest.” It’s like the real Rosetta mission but with you in control of the spacecraft.

First, drop the comet lander carefully onto the nucleus; observe and record gas jets, craters, cracks, and other happenings; dodge and dart around ice chunks flying off the nucleus; and, in your sparetime, communicate with the lander and with Earth. 

All these accomplishments earn you points. Accumulate as many points as possible during the fixed game period. Earn bonus points by taking a short, optional comet quiz at the end of a game. Beat your best score or compete with your friends!
