Rendezvous with a Comet  |  Simulator Mission

A team of scientists and engineers are on a daring mission to take an up-close look at a comet as it streaks across the galaxy. The goal is to plot a successful course to Rendezvous with a Comet. First, the team must plot the correct intercept course. Then they must construct and launch a space probe to gather data from the comet. What seems to be a routine exploration at first, becomes filled with challenges and emergencies. Each obstacle requires students to work together as a team to find a solution in order make the mission successful.
