PRACE has created games as part of its outreach activities. These games are Mars Mania and Shooting Stars. Shooting Stars was created within the context of the PRACE “Dare to Think the Impossible” outreach campaign, while Mars Mania draws upon the work on Vlasiator.
These games are used in public events and science fairs around Europe to explain the power of supercomputers to younger audiences and can also be installed on smartphones for personal enjoyment.
Let the Mars Mania begin!
The game is created around the popular idea of sending and guiding a probe to Mars and avoiding obstacles and unpredictable space weather conditions. For more information
