Develop a game allowing players to explore lava tubes on Mars. Astronauts might one day use lava tubes for shelter from dust storms and space radiation, which are dangerous hazards on Mars. The lava tubes can also be used for exploring underground access to resources. The game could be searching for lava tubes with real data and/or building a simulated community within the lava tubes highly dependent on local resources. The challenge in developing this Space App will be in learning about lava tubes, how to access and utilize NASA’s Mars datasets, and how a future Martian might survive with minimal to no resupply from Earth via Massless Exploration

This project is solving the Survivor: Mars Lava Tubes challenge.


Lisa Anderson is an astronaut on a mars exploration mission. Lisa is in danger of running out of oxygen. Dust storms and space radiation is seen approaching in the horizon. Help her get back to safety by using the lava tube to get back to her ship safely!

Our goals are to entice and create interest in mars lava tubes. This will be achieved through our interactive game. We believe our concept will be enticing to the younger generation to take an interest

Here is our gameplay video ^^
