Space Rescue

Problem Solving For Hands-On Teams

Learning-Focused, Intense Challenge


In the near future, a new commercial spaceliner has an event that cripples the ship.

The crew need help and Houston isn't responding.


The explosion happens in standard Earth orbit. And the crew's air is running out.

They can't stay up there. But they can communicate with your team.


Each team becomes the ground crew for their spacecraft.

They tackle a variety of team puzzles to get the ship back to Earth before the ship's air runs out.

The Scenario and More


Space Rescue is an online team building activity set in the near future like no other. As the name suggests, you are on a mission to save your spacecraft and its crew.

You have the tools and technology to save it and the people aboard.

Houston, we have a problem...

It is the near future. Commercial Space Travel is a reality. Safety is the number one priority. Highly trained ground teams stand ready to assist any spacecraft that gets into trouble.

Each team becomes a ground crew, trying to help a stricken commercial spaceliner make a safe landing. Along the way are many challenges to overcome.

They hone their skills with the help of a computer-controlled emergency simulator. Your group now has access to that simulator.

This is no Xbox® or PlayStation® game - the computer becomes a communications hub as each team organises itself and helps the crew get safely back to Earth in this learning-focused online team building activity.

When to choose Space Rescue

Space Rescue is an intense, learning-focused online team building activity that offers a real team challenge and helps improve team effectiveness.

Teams tackle a wide variety of tasks as they help a stricken commercial spaceship get back to Earth safely.  Think Apollo 13 and you are halfway there.

You'll need 4 hours in total for the activity, including preparation time and debrief.  The action itself lasts exactly 2 hours.  You'll want half an hour for team preparation time and 90 minutes for the debrief - if you want one.

So ... only choose Space Rescue if you have people who enjoy solving problems and you have the time to allocate.
