The US space agency spoke about this game:
Available through its own Facebook page, Space Race Blastoff pits players in remote locations in a test of their knowledge of NASA history, technology, science and pop culture. Players who correctly answer questions earn virtual badges depicting NASA astronauts, spacecraft and astronomical objects. Players also earn points they can use to obtain additional badges to complete sets that earn premium badges.
NASA spoke about the game:
We’re hoping Space Race Blastoff opens up NASA’s history and research to a wide new audience of people accustomed to using social media. We’re really excited to see what the interest will be.
The game is designed to be played by multiple people together though it has a single user option. It has been developed by the NASA’s Internet Services Group in the Office of Communications.
