Where in Space Is Carmen Sandiego? is a game produced by Broderbund and released in 1993 for MS-DOS and 1994 for Macintosh. The game, for both children and adults, teaches players about the solar system. Even though the game was not a "deluxe" edition, its title was stylised as Where in Space is Carmen Sandiego? Deluxe Edition.


The player flies in a rocket ship throughout the solar system, questioning various alien lifeforms in order to solve the theft of an important part of the solar system (e.g. Saturn's rings). There is only a limited amount of fuel available for travel, so if the player doesn't ask the right questions on the right planets, or follows the wrong clues, the criminal(s) will get away, leaving the player to start over again with another crime. This version is somewhat similar to Where in the World Is Carmen Sandiego?, in which the player chases a culprit who stole something, and making a warrant to apprehend the culprit. Players travel in the Cosmohopper 911 Turbo, and access the VAL 9000 database for information.
