Bored? Try Some Space Related Games

In honor of the Apollo 11 flight, I have gathered a few space related games. A few are even educational. Take some time to relive the space flight with these games and even learn a few things in the process.

Go to NASA's Kids Club to play all kinds of neat space games for elementary level kids. (I confess, some of the games are even fun for adults.)

NASA's Kid's Club site let's you build your own rocket

You can also play, Space Shuttle Launch which provides math education as you need to solve a math problem to launch the rocket.

Another fun game (but not as educationally geared) is Rocket Robin where you need to get the launch parameters just right or your rocket explodes.
Launch the rocket correctly to avoid an explosion.

If you feel heroic, play Rocket Rescue. In this game you pilot a space ship that rescues fellow astronauts who are floating in space.

The higher the level, the more astronauts need to be rescued.

Also: Check out this blog entry by Joe Mendrzycki Apollo 11: 40 Years-One Giant Leap for some other excellent resources and additional links to the Apollo 11 story.
