explore-asteroidsThis project is solving the Asteroids 2025-2100 - Future History challenge.
Our challenge aims to show the importance of the NASA's Asteroid Redirect Mission (ARM) ... This mission is looking forward to capture an asteroid and put it on our Moon's orbit to be able to mine it and use it resources besides being a training and step by place for Mars mission 2030... Our task is to show the importance of asteroids specially mining and focus on NASA's ARM using digital ways that are easy for anyone to understand and deal with... We are intending to solve the problem through making 4 digital experiences; first, we have made a mobile application easy to download and use; it contains three options, to watch a gallery of asteroids, to take quizzes of asteroids "quizzes is multiple choices and true or false”, to explore information about asteroids and he have the option to let it appear as notification on his cell phone "we have provided 15 pictures, 20 quizzes, 100 piece of information"... second, we are working on an educational website that gives a brief information of asteroids...it starts with general information about asteroids , then asteroid danger, Asteroid mining, NASA's Asteroid Redirect Mission , How to do it, finally future history of what we will reach. Third, we have made a short video, showing the crash of an asteroid into Russia 2013, then a flashback showing what would have happened if NASA had captured this asteroid. finally, we were tending to make a programming of an educational game, that starts with the gamer choosing an asteroid depending on its size "which will be given" then put it into an orbital, if it is the right one, it will orbit the Moon, if not, it will crash...Then the gamer should use icons of UV, X-ray and IR spectroscopy to show the contents of the asteroid "which should be coded in the game" Finally he choose an asteroid to help NASA build Mars...
