Watch for the Kickstarter in May 2017

The Game of Planetary Discovery and Scientific Exploration. In Downlink, players compete and collaborate to build and launch a space mission on a voyage of discovery. Once the scientific instruments reach the target, the data must be downlinked to reveal the science discovery made. The game includes launch sites and rockets from six different actual space agencies. Real missions of solar system exploration are used to design the spacecraft and science instruments. Science discoveries fall into five different categories and represent the most exciting results from across the planets. Ages 8+, 2-6 players, 30 – 60 minutes.

About Spacecraft Downlinks and Scientific Equipment

Spacecraft send back scientific data back to Earth ground stations through a process called downlink.  That is a big part of what our upcoming game — Downlink — will explore. Here is a description of the scientific equipment that will send information back to scientists from the OSIRIS-REx mission.
