To design a “data-inspired space adventure to inspire the next generation of scientists and space explorers”. I’ll be using the ethos of co-design and hack events to co-create, with whoever wants to participate, a story/adventure that will ultimately lead to me (actually) going to space. The broad ambition for #spacegame is to create an episodic adventure that an astronaut will play over the duration of their mission to the ISS that will include: • science and engineering based puzzles that need solving with participation from co-players on Earth • objects that need designing on Earth and then 3D printed in space to (literally) unlock next levels • a prize for successful completion that includes unlocking a new musical composition by David Bowie, performed in space. To help us complete this challenge we will need: • people to drop in to our hack space at the Met Office and contribute to the creation of the story (we’ll also be inviting contributions virtually – follow us on twitter @unspaceagency over the weekend for live info on how to take part) • graphic designers, illustrators, animators to create prototype visuals for the story • technologists specialising in 3D printing to advise on technical possibilities and limitations • to persuade an astronaut flying to the ISS and their space agency to take part • an introduction to David Bowie
