In 2013 the conference name was officially changed to SEE (formerly known as Smackdown) and was held in San Diego, CA. MIT, Genoa, Bordeaux, Penn State, UAH, Nebraska, Brunel (UK), and Munich participated in a very complementary scenario that now had moved to Aikens Basin on the far side of the moon.
For the first time, 2013 took activity off the Moon with Munich starting the L2 Outpost and Genoa again, in partnership with MBDA, further developing their simulation to track and destroy potentially dangerous asteroids. During the simulated mission, in addition to the Lander landing and Cargo Rover delivering supplies to the Supply Depot, MIT added an interactive astronaut that walked to the new Oxygen factory (Brunel) and back. The UAH Communication Satellite communicated with the Shuttle Lander and Nebraska operated the Cargo Rover. The UAH Mass Driver launched cargo to the Munich L2 outpost.
