This project is solving the Asteroid Prospector challenge. Description
The purpose of this game is to try to get people more interested in space and to let people learn more about mining asteroids.
It is an interesting field with little popularity. It might help kids get interested in space, mining, and engineering disciplines/fields.
The game is also purposed around surviving as long as you can, by mining asteroids for resources to survive. As you survive longer, you will travel further into space, and see the respective planets in our solar system at the respective distances.
