ESA’s new interactive web documentary about the Moon has taken me back to the days of playing computer games as a kid. Although the documentary doesn’t have the catchy songs of LeAnn Rhymes, the early 2000s feel present with the documentary’s click and find nature of the computer games of that time. I know… I just had to work my bad music pun title into the article but in all honesty I was thinking where was this when I was 8! Dare I say it is more fun than the Magic School Bus Game?
Even though it brings up the enjoyment and memory of being a child for me, the site is definitely geared towards adults alike with countless treasure troves of information. Within each of the interactive stations on the moon there are a bunch of subset videos and infographics of more projects than you can imagine. And ESA plans to keep adding to it! In human history, the Moon has such an important role of not only human exploration but countless other scientific missions that there is plenty to talk about. The site categorizes each of the stations as Science, Technology, or Missions, so no matter what area in STEM you are interested in, there are a whole bunch of links to poke around in.
It is about time our closest neighbor is back in the spotlight.

P.S. Don’t miss the twirling Earth in the background 😉
oh and btw if you haven’t ventured outside of the USA, ESA stands for European Space Agency, NASA’s counterpart in Europe
