‘Houston, we’ve got a griefer!’

We intercepted the following note from Linden Lab’s Research Department about an exciting research project from the American National Aeronautics and Space Administration:

NASA MMO

 

NASA Learning Technologies has issued a Request for Information (RFI):
Development of a NASA-based Massively Multiplayer Online Learning Game.
Here’s the URL:
procurement.nasa.gov/cgi-bin/eps/synopsis.cgi?acqid=128415
The deadline if 15 Feb 08 for the RFI, with an RFP likely in March.

NASA MMO

From ipp.gsfc.nasa.gov/mmo :NASA MMO website

“Virtual worlds with scientifically accurate simulations could permit learners to tinker with chemical reactions in living cells, practice operating and repairing expensive equipment, and experience microgravity – making it easier to grasp complex concepts and quickly transfer this understanding to practical problems”

So, will it be:

Just a small step for an avatar, but a giant leap for mankind?
