Under Missions, you can play all kinds of games and score points.
Under Profile, you can track your weekly points, weekly rank, all-time rank, badges, the level of training you are at, and the leader-board with your score and the top scorers.

Users can train in three core areas: body, mind, and social.
The challenges are designed to test your cognitive and social skills like problem-solving and managing a crisis.
The app not only teaches you the science behind space travel but also features physical challenges to make your body space-ready.

Mazdak Nassir, co-founder of Space Nation, said, "Space Nation does not run any rockets or spaceships. We collaborate with different space companies, several of which are expected to launch their first commercial space flight this year or in 2019."
"The selected candidate will go as the first Space Nation Astronaut with one of them. The first flight in 2019 will be suborbital," he added.
