AIM Space Challenge

Space missions are fascinating, but they’re also very complex, take a huge effort and an enormous amount of time. How can we involve a broader audience in this interesting process, in collaboration with the European Space Agency (ESA)?

We have developed an informative and playful mobile tycoon game called AIM Space Challenge. The game portrays a breakdown of ESA’s proposed space mission AIM (Asteroid Impact Mission). The objective of the game is to build your own Space Centre and perform missions related to it.

More information about AIM and how to download the game can be found at ESA’s website.
