Description from the packaging.

Make the universe your personal laboratory.

Definitely do try this at home!
Imagine having a fun and easy way to conduct experiments in outer space: on the sun, on the moon and stars, even in other galaxies- experiments beyond anything you ever dreamed possible. As Isaac Asimov About Space lets you do that and more, without ever leaving home.

Simulate experiments that are out of this world!
By entering one of the Reality Generators, you direct and control your own quest for answers to cosmic questions like, "Why do stars twinkle?" or "What is an eclipse?"

You'll be equipped with plenty of out-of-this-galaxy tools... in one world you can make planets spin... In another, you're armed with a space gun that lets you shoot rocks and chunks of ice through the atmosphere.

Even your parents will find these experiments fascinating. Hands-on learning, supported with video and Asimov's own writings, enhances your mastery of outer space.

The great explainer- Isaac Asimov.
Meet Asimov, your "hologram guide," the brilliant science fiction writer who specializes in making the utterly fantastic seem real. With Asimov, you zoom between experimental worlds, sharing his humor and insights every step of the way. He'll introduce you to scientists, who love to prove that you can't believe everything you see and hear. Asimov keeps you enthralled through many hours of play.

The Ask Isaac Asimov Series is proof- science is a blast!
Welcome to Asimov's world of discovery, where you can learn about science fact by exploring science fiction. In Ask Isaac Asimov About Space and in future titles, you'll probe fascinating questions by conducting simulated experiments in a virtual universe you access right from your own computer. Isaac Asimov, who appears in a hologram, hosts each title, giving you his own brilliantly distinctive outlook on science's great questions.

Try to find these in science lab! Check out some of the tools you'll get your hands on: Totally hip machine, Mass accelerator, Tilt-A-World, Gas Boy.
