NASA launches a retro ‘8-bit’ space game, here’s how to play

NASA is back in the gaming industry with an interesting game. The agency has introduced a retro 8-bit space game that was much loved by the older generations.

Along with this game, the agency plans to promote the Nancy Grace Roman Telescope. Eventually the launch of ‘Roman Space Observer’ has some purpose as this game will help promote the Nancy Grace Roman Telescope in a fun way.

NASA’s retro game gives players a minute to ‘catch’ as ​​many space objects as possible. Players can enjoy listening to old school music that plays in the background of the game while galaxies, rogue exoplanets and black holes fly around them.

As part of the game, players will get points not only for catching objects, but also for getting more information about the object they are holding. The game has been developed to combine fun with learning as players will be able to learn about cosmic objects and the Nancy Grace Roman Telescope while they enjoy playing.

Interestingly, the game is named after NASA executive Nancy Roman. She is also known as the ‘Mother of Hubble’ because she helped NASA work around the birth of the Hubble Space Telescope.

The Hubble Telescope is one of NASA’s great observatories. It was launched into low Earth orbit in 1990 and is named after astronomer Edwin Hubble.

The Roman Space Telescope, which will be promoted by the game, will investigate various mysteries related to space. This includes discovering what is causing the expansion of the universe and which planets exist beyond the solar system we know of.

According to the agency, the Roman Space Telescope will be Hubble’s “wide-eyed cousin” because it will capture 100 times more sky than the Hubble Telescope.

With its megapixel instrumentation, the new observatory can take pictures of a wide area of ​​space. It can also measure the universe using state-of-the-art, advanced technologies.

While the 8-bit game is easy to enjoy, it can be deemed quite an adventure for those interested in science and space objects.
