Awards & Nominations

SpaceTROVE has received the following awards and nominations. Way to go!

Global Nominee

The Challenge | Virtual Space Exploration

Generate Virtual Reality environments for the surface of the Moon and Mars! Obtain 3D models from NASA resources, such as Moon Trek and Mars Trek. Integrate 3D models of surface exploration systems and habitats. Develop and deploy the virtual world at a hosting service.

Space Trove

Using virtual reality and blockchain to create a multiplayer collaborative platform to allow users to explore actual Places on Mars based on 3D models from NASA. The Blockchain enables users to earn tokens that they can use in the game.Mars Scavenger hunt!

Team SpaceTROVE's challenge was to create Virtual Reality experiences which enable public relate with Moon and Mars. We created an Online Multiplayer game using Unity 3D game engine which allows players to play this from any device. Interactive Learning using actual 3D maps of Mars from NASA Database helps making Learning more Fun for players.

In this Open World game, players are prompted to invest on certain locations on Mars using ERC-721 tokens. They make this investment to secure a place for their survival for a time when Earth becomes uninhabitable. They use these trove tokens for improving their rovers, investing and exchanging with other players. This barter-like exchange helps them receive a unique experience of civilization development.

Throughout every location on Mars in the game, there are visuals which tell the player about actual data of that location. For example: Gale Crater on Mars has found evidence of water and an ancient freshlake water body. This information prompts the player to invest his Trove tokens on Gale Crater because s/he could survive with this usable water on Mars.

Earth and Spacetrove's future depends on you. Visit our website and Github project site and support us in our journey as we try to give people the ability to relate with with space and dream about Intergalactic travel.

We can all relate with Wall E and Star Trek, but it is time that people learn to relate with the feeling of being an astronaut on Mars, on any day from their homes!
