Minecraft gamers can completely perfect a standard spaceship by themselves and launch it to the Moon because Microsoft has cooperated with NASA.
Plan of cooperation between Microsoft and NASA confirmed by both parties. In the near future, gamers can completely perfect a standard spaceship by themselves and launch it to the Moon in Minecraft. In addition, players are also free to experience the life of an astronaut in space.
As part of the Artemis Program, NASA’s goal is to return humans to the Moon after the first trip since the 1970s. To realize a noble mission spanning decades, NASA has “shaken hands” ‘ with Microsoft to create a series of interwoven lessons in Minecraft. This is expected to inspire young people, build the foundation of ‘astronauts’ and future engineers, and introduce the unique technologies of the Artemis Program.
A representative from NASA shared: ‘NASA is committed to engaging as wide a audience as possible and inspiring generations of Artemis to prepare them for future missions.’

During the game, participants will learn the basics of a spaceship, the difficulties in the task and survival in the dark space environment. Mojang has also designed new Maps in Minecraft that are now available for free on Minecraft Education, including:
Artemis: Rocket Build – Players will learn more about NASA’s Space Launch System, which successfully launched the first rocket in November 2022. Next, the young people will be asked to deal with fuel and budget constraints during construction and learn how to launch their rockets.
Artemis: Return to the Moon – More academic and more professional because young people will need to use the Python programming language to solve problems during the trip to the Moon on the Orion spacecraft.
For the same purpose, NASA also worked with studio Squad to develop content for the Kerbal Space Program. It is known that in order to expand its influence to young people, the US Aeronautics and Space Administration has been trying to build relationships with major game studios for many years.
