Mars Community Builder allows users to explore the possibilities and challenges of establishing a self-expanding permanent base on Mars. This simulator allows users to learn about Mars and take part in a step-by-step building process that could one day make an interplanetary community a reality.
Building a base on Mars will require a variety of modules and equipment to provide services to the astronauts and to produce food, fuel, water, energy, and oxygen that is required to sustain community building efforts. The first part of your mission is to learn about the different types of equipment at your disposal. Pay close attention to the characteristics and features of the modules and equipment. You will have an opportunity to explore all space modules individually using VR and AR technology.
In part two of your mission, you will use Augmented Reality, AR technology to put your equipment knowledge to the test. Here, youll assemble your own community. Carefully choose the equipment to lay out your own community. When youre finished, your Mars community will be evaluated for sustainability.
This app uses Augmented Reality technology. Please be aware of your surroundings when using. Parental supervision advised.
