This immersive virtual reality simulation lets students explore the Red Planet. Developed collaboratively by Fusion Media Group, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and NASA—and available free for K–12 classroom and museum educators—the simulation was designed using real data from NASA’s Mars missions to deliver an authentic experience based on what is known about Mars today. Players hunt across an accurate Martian landscape for samples, analyze findings under a virtual microscope inside their workstation, and communicate discoveries to NASA and family back on Earth. A desktop version also is available for users without virtual reality hardware.
