Our LIGO/GEO Colleagues at the University of Birmingham have just released a free and fun interactive computer game called "Space-Time Quest". It is available from this web site. There is also a one-minute YouTube trailer describing the game, which involves designing, building and operating a modern gravitational-wave detector on a fixed 100-million-pound budget.

Someone put a lot of work into that! Unfortunately I get to do enough project management in real life. I prefer shooting monsters in my video games...

Are you worried about a shortage of project managers in the future. Need to get them trained up on the simulator!

Just joking. I hope it spreads the word about good science.
