School Space Mission
Expedition Mars Mission Simulation:
This simulation includes various challenges for the crews in space and on the ground. Space mission simulations are great for your group for field trips, birthday parties, corporate team building and much more. The year is 2076. A handful of facilities have been established on Mars. The primary human habitat is not on Mars, but on one of its moons, Phobos. The Mars Transport Vehicle (MTV), carries parts to build a remotely operated vehicle (ROV) to continue the search for the evidence of life and water.
