Wolverine Island, sandbox area
In real life, Inertial Voom is an engineer by profession, and through his passion for outer space, he has become the longtime leader of the Oklahoma chapter of the National Space Society (NSS).
In Second Life, Inertial has developed a game called the Great Space Race that combines history, rocketry, politics, management and team building in an entertaining and educational exercise. The project is also interesting for the building and scripting challenges it presented. Just imagine, in Second Life, trying to assemble all these pieces into a rocket that will actually take off!
For more information about the context and structure of the game, please see the following slides.
