Essay on the depiction of space exploration in video games

   The shared history between space exploration and video games can be traced 57 years in the past to as old as 1962, with the presentation of SpaceWar the first digital video game ever, the game made with cutting edge technology at the time, Spacewar followed the narrative that is proper to the futurist science-fiction genre, presenting technologically advanced ships fighting with proton torpedoes or lasers ( FunFact: the proton torpedoes were used because at the time it was impossible to translate gravity’s propriety on a computer).

In fact, it is interesting to analyze the physics of travel in the space described in the first video games. Most would follow the laws of physics present in the Earth's atmosphere, which would give the spacecraft an appearance closer to that of today
Modern video games have not changed the stories of previous generations; the genre remained focused on the most popular type of video game, action. However, the big change would be in graphics, storylines, and fiction. To create a more harmonious environment focused on creating a more captivating and immersive story, it is a whole movement in the video game industry that will be the spearhead of the barrier to travel to the infinite.

For example, one of the most relevant video games today is talking about “Kerbal Space Program” for those who do not know it,  Kerbal Space Program, take charge of the space program for the alien race known as the Kerbals. You’ll have access to an array of parts to assemble fully-functional spacecraft that fly (or don’t) based on realistic aerodynamic and orbital physics. Launch your Kerbal crew into orbit and beyond (while keeping them alive) to explore moons and planets in the Kerbol solar system, constructing bases and space stations to expand the reach of your expedition.

Kerbal Space Program features three gameplay modes. In Science Mode, perform space experiments to unlock new technology and advance the knowledge of Kerbalkind. In Career Mode, oversee every aspect of the space program, including construction, strategy, funding, upgrades, and more. In Sandbox, you are free to build any spacecraft you can think of, with all parts and technology in the game.

Everything is achievable, Building spaceships, rockets, planes, and vehicles using any imaginable combination of parts, each with their own function that will affect the way your spacecraft behaves.

-          - Take full control over your ship’s setup to execute complex flight maneuvers.
-          - Manage your Kerbal crewmembers, including hiring, training, and sending them into space to become heroes.
-          - Discover a whole star system with unique moons and planets, exploring detailed terrain at a vast scale, you can also send your Kerbal crew outside their ships for “extra-vehicular” activities.
-          - Dock spacecraft together to construct space stations, massive starships, and surface bases on new planets.
-          - Use satellites to scan terrain and find biomes and other anomalies.
-          - Set up communications networks to communicate between your spacecraft and Kerbal Space Center.

Research and develop new technologies to extract valuable information and resources from all over the solar system, nothing prevents you to start the adventure, here is the official website: https://www.kerbalspaceprogram.com/

What are the best space games on PC / Steam?

Here are the links that according to our research, seems the most relevant, and more creative:

- Kerbal space program
- Sins of a solar Empire: Rebellion
- Starbound
- FTL : faster than light
- Space enginers
- Elite : dangerous
- Star wars
- Endless space
- Sellaris
- Strike suit zero

     We can not talk about space games without referring to simulators! Space flight simulator game is software that allows the operator to experience spacecraft space flight in outer space with the added elements of gameplay. There are many different types of simulators. These simulators range in purpose from pure simulation to sheer entertainment. Space flight occurs beyond the Earth's atmosphere, and space flight simulators feature the ability to roll, pitch, and yaw. Space flight simulators use flight dynamics in a free environment; this free environment lets the spacecraft move within the three-dimensional coordinate system or the x, y, and z (applicate) axis.

Speaking of games related to space, we suggest you to pilot The Lockheed Martin X-59 From Your Laptop QueSST ("Quiet Supersonic Transport") is an American experimental supersonic aircraft being developed at Skunk Works for NASA's Low-Boom Flight Demonstrator program.

Interns from three NASA centers spent their summer competing to develop a laptop flight simulator of the X-59 Quiet SuperSonic Technology or “QueSST” aircraft. The X-59 is an experimental supersonic aircraft currently under construction and will fly for the first time in 2021. Now, those laptop simulations are available to the public for free and allow people to fly the X-59 from home.

NASA interns (left to right) Daniel Prohaska, Thomas Ozoroski, and Rob Kohring at Langley Research Center in Hampton, Va., look onto a projection of their X-59 QueSST model that they used in a computer flight simulator competition.

- Ensure Xplane 11 is installed on your computer Before you start downloading the X-59: XPLANE 11

 For the more adventurous, curious and scientific  of you (The LRS Deans), fasten your belts, you will have your dose of creativity, the black leads to perfection, only learn to Have fun, learn while helping the world: Technology, engineering and mathematics. 

video games with an imaginary repository, which is accessible to everyone, every dreamer who dreams of space, and who aims to transmit science, is today an essential method, which aims at educating people, and to make them aware of the environment, while forging them for the future, simulators are the surest and most logical future reality, space games are a logic of a culmination of a long period of research, exercise is like for new learners will be benefit for us because nowadays the imagination can prove new discoveries and solve the keys of tomorrow.
