It seems NASA is not the first to develop a space exploration video game. While hunting around for new images or even video of NASA’s massively multiplayer game Astronaut: Moon, Mars and beyond I found this announcement by the US space agency’s MMO provider Virtual Heroes.

In the mean time watch the videos above of Virtual Heroes previous space exploration game, produced for the Discovery channel, Race to Mars: Mission Two. And see more Virtual Heroes game play video here
