Space Nation Navigator is one of the few NASA-endorsed apps that you could download right now. Actually, this self-improvement app was created by tapping into NASA’s database of knowledge on astronaut training.
The Space Nation Navigator has three areas: body, mind and social. In each area you’ll find a lot of games, missions and quizzes, all of them organized on three levels of difficulty.
Combining the challenge of leveling up with actual NASA training techniques could be exactly what you need if you’re looking for motivation and personal progress.
“We hope an app like Space Nation’s will help global users better understand what it takes to be an astronaut in a fun and entertaining way,” said Mike Read of NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston.
Even better, Space Nation Navigator has tangible prizes, like a free tour to Iceland where you’ll train in the same place as NASA astronauts.
“Space Nation Navigator and the Space Nation Astronaut Program are the first training tools for civilian pioneers of future space travel. Low Earth orbit is open for business, companies are preparing to mine asteroids and build hotels. More and more people will visit space. This next step in the new space race will require a host of skills, skills that Space Nation Navigator will provide to anyone in the world,” explain the developers.
Right now, the app is only available on Android but an iOS version is also in the works. You can download it for free at Google Play Store.
