Sign in to Postman: Create a Postman account if you don't have one already, and log into Postman for the web in your browser. To use Postman in a web browser, download and run the Postman agent on your local machine to overcome cross-origin resource sharing (CORS) limitations. The agent is not the same as the app. On a Mac, you will see an icon for the Postman agent running in the status menu at the top right of your computer screen. On a Windows machine, the Postman agent icon displays in the system tray at the bottom right of your computer screen.

Frequently Asked Questions
How long does it take to complete the Lost in Space mission? Plan to spend 2 to 4 hours or longer. Go at your own pace. There is no penalty for taking longer, collaborating with teammates, or taking a break and returning to try again. It is highly encouraged to form a team, since everyone's brain works differently and humans can accomplish more together than individually.
I am not a native English speaker. Is this challenge for me? Some of the puzzles are extremely challenging if you are not a native English speaker, or are visually-impaired or hearing-impaired. It is highly encouraged to form a team with diverse capabilities and perspectives.
Can I search the Internet? Yes. Use any available resources to solve the puzzles.
