About The Mission
As commercial space activity accelerates, space tourism is quickly becoming a not-so-distant dream. The year is 2130 and the first liveable habitat on Titan is on the brink of completion. Your team has been tasked to design a spaceship unlike any before it.
The payload? Titan’s first colony.
Your team has been challenged to design a spaceship that can transport and sustain the lives of 50 men, women, and children on the 7-year journey to Titan.
Explore zero gravity living, come up with innovative products and solutions that can improve passenger experience, and help shape the future of space travel.
