Experience Luna's Wandering Stars!

Our friends from Serenity Forge, a video game developer based in Boulder, Colo., will be here all day on Saturday, August 9, showing off their latest video game, Luna's Wandering Stars, in our AGI Space Missions Simulation Laboratory.

Luna's Wandering Stars is an action-puzzle game that simulates real orbital physics. Play the game and see what happens to the physics of planets and moons when you play with spectacular powers such as black holes, wormholes, changing velocity, and even moving entire planets!
