This is an interactive resource that explores the International Space Station through a Station Spacewalk Game in which participants conduct virtual NASA repair work on the International Space Station. In the game, participants leave the airlock and complete tasks executed by astronauts to help power up the space station so it can continue to operate. Each mission is called an Extravehicular Activity (EVA) and participants are provided with a limited supply of oxygen to complete the tasks, and must return to the airlock before the air supply runs out. The video game features simulations of actual EVAs conducted by NASA astronauts on missions to provide power to the space station. This resource requires the installation of the Unity Web Player software, which is available on the NASA website.
