You don't have to be a rocket scientist to launch a NASA spacecraft with NASA's Rocket Science 101 (RS101)! Select your favorite NASA mission and build a rocket to send the spacecraft into orbit. As you take the RS101 challenge, you can learn more about thrilling missions and the various components of the launch vehicles, how they are configured and how they work together to successfully launch a NASA spacecraft. NASA's Launch Services Program (LSP) does the same things for real rockets and exciting spacecraft missions every day - now it's your turn!
NASA’s Launch Services Program (LSP) leads the agency in providing access to space for the exploration of our home planet, solar system and the universe. LSP is located at the Kennedy Space Center and acts as a broker to match unmanned payloads with specific launch vehicles for customers to ensure mission success. The principal objectives of LSP are to provide safe, reliable, cost-effective and on-schedule processing, mission analysis and spacecraft integration and launch services for NASA and NASA-sponsored payloads.

Nothing to do plus learning👎🏻
All I do is nothing. All I do is pick one of the three for example if I pick the middle one, then it will show me a lot of different missions, then I choose a mission, then I pick a rocket, then I build it, then I click launch and it will launch... And all I get to do is click on parts for them to go away.....then I just watch it fly. And it looks like it wants to teach you stuff like why, I don't really like learning sometimes. So don't waste your time on this.😒😒😒👎🏻
This is a cool app but it's too easy and consists of the same thing in every option u choose. It would be ok for a little kid but not really anyone over the age of 10
A nice idea, but not really a challenge. There is no game element to it, because there is nothing you can actually do wrong. Only mildly educational. Would be good for a very young child as a very rudimentary introduction to NASA.
