Space travel has been a luxury that is only available to billionaires. There is a way for regular people to experience space, and it’s not only possible from their homes. Virtual reality technology is rapidly improving and anyone interested can now experience space from the comfort of their own home.
Space Explorers: the ISS Experience is a new TIME series that gives non-billionaires a glimpse into what it’s like to visit the International Space Station. This series features astronauts such as Anne McClain and Nick Hague, Christina H. Koch and Jessica U. Meir. They are currently stationed at the ISS.
The project is a collaboration between NASA and offers a multiplatform immersive production. It uses custom-built virtual reality cameras that are engineered to operate at zero gravity. The series features over 200 hours of footage from astronauts documenting their lives in space. It gives viewers a unique glimpse into the Earth. The series also provides insight into the lives of astronauts in space.
The third and fourth episodes of Space Explorers: The ISS Experience take viewers on an immersive experience of what it’s like to float around on the surface of space. The episodes will drop in the second half of this year. They will also be available on Oculus Store as a fully immersive VR experience.
