NASA's popular "Comet Quest" game from NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory is now available for free in three additional languages. The game can be downloaded from the iTunes Apps store in Spanish, French and German (as well as English).
Players of "Comet Quest" learn about comets and the European Space Agency's international Rosetta mission. The game mimics the real Rosetta mission, and enables you to control the spacecraft. Players drop a lander on a comet's nucleus, then observe and record events (cracks in the comet, coma and tail getting brighter and more) as they occur. Players must avoid hazards and successfully transmit data to Earth, earning points for each accomplishment.
The free "Comet Quest" app is available for download for iPhone and iPad from the iTunes Store at http://bit.ly/xXhjI7.
