I have an S10 with Android 10 and the app doesn't work!! After selecting the mission and the vehicle, I'm supposed to see everything in 3d with the camera, but I can't. The screen stays black and it asks me to "move the phone around in circles until the app detects a horizontal surface". It never finds such "surface". Then, I downloaded a pdf with images of rocks to see if that worked, but again, it didn't. It really is a shame.

Fantastic use of AR technology for education. So cool being able to view detailed, 3d models of spacecraft in your own home. I was really surprised how well it worked. Can't wait to see more added in the future!

Fun, but hard to navigate to alternative spacecraft (eg. launch vehicles) & exit from. I have to resort to putting phone into screen saver mode or restarting to get back to other menus!
