Mission Sun

2020 Mission Postponed

Create Your Own Spinoff

  • Research
  • Design
  • Innovate

Solve a problem redesigning NASA technology.

OPTIMUS PRIME wants you to identify NASA Spinoff technology in your world and test your skills at designing an innovation that will make your universe a better place!

Mission Sun includes technologies that NASA uses to conduct heliophysics missions. Heliophysics is another word for the study of the Sun, and this mission involves technologies that reveal how our closest star interacts with the rest of the solar system.

Just like an engineer, you will use an engineering design process to create your own spinoff that may solve a real-world problem for Earth’s neighbors.

Using a combination of text, images, and videos, you will create a webpage with Adobe Spark to share your ideas with NASA.
