Crater Creator is an interactive game designed for the American Museum of Natural History's Space Fest to educate people about moon craters in a fun way.


Players can access the game by going to, follow the instructions on the screen to create an impactor (comet or asteroid) and shoot it to the Moon on the big screen. The installation was intended for Space Fest, a celebration of the 70th anniversary of moon landing. Multiple players can stand in front of the screen that shows a simulation of a moon-like object in space, and go to the url on their own mobile devices to shoot asteroids at the moon. After shooting, they will see information about the craters they created on their own devices.
