You Can Be On The Pilot Seat Of SpaceX Crew Dragon With This New App From NASA

The app of NASA will be about giving users a simulation of what it is like to plan and execute a commercial crew flight, of course in a simplified form

NASA has just introduced a new web-based game, or app if you would like to install it on your mobile device. And as we all know what NASA does, the app will be about giving users a simulation of what it is like to plan and execute a commercial crew flight, of course in a simplified form.

That is what SpaceX Crew Dragon and Boeing Starliner will do when they start flying with a crew in 2020.

With this app or game, you will be taken through each stage of the whole process, including choosing the right spacecraft, selecting the type of the mission, launching, and then docking.

What the app does is to provide an educational experience of what the actual process is going to be, rather than showing you an as realistic experience as possible. The docking process on the International Space Station can be done on manual or automatic mode, with the former being quite challenging.

NASA has provided a great deal of information on the Starliner and the Crew Dragon. It also gives you the detailed bios of ten astronauts you can select to be your staff on each mission.

The app is newly released so users might experience some bugs, like with the launch assembly stage. However, overall, everything runs smoothly most of the time and users will get to know more about the vital elements of the spacecraft, from crew capsules, boosters, and everything else.

The app’s name is Rocket Science: Ride 2 Station and it is free to download for iOS users. You can get it on the web too.
