NASA Facebook Game – Space Race Blastoff

NASA recently released its first multiplayer Facebook game, Space Race Blastoff. It’s a competitive trivia game, in which you’re pitted against random opponents from around the world. You earn points for correct answers and bonus points for getting the correct answer first. I’ve played a few rounds and was actually surprised at how challenging some of the questions were. For example, you might be shown a photograph an astronaut and have to answer whom it is. I got Tom Stafford right, but didn’t recognize Stanley G. Love. Other questions aren’t specifically NASA-related, ranging from questions about the periodic table of elements to pop-culture references. If you’ve got a few minutes to spare and want a quick and fun test of your space sciences knowledge, give it a shot!
