Forget the scripted narration and cheesy Hollywood effects. This is raw, uncut space reality brought to your living room (or wherever you choose to float!) thanks to fearless astronauts and cutting-edge VR tech.

Yeah, we're talking next-level immersion here.Imagine waking up alongside the Expedition 59 crew, sunlight streaming through the windows of your cosmic home. Peek behind their sleepy grins, tickle their noses with a zero-gravity boop (if you dare!), and witness the real deal – space life, unfiltered and unscripted. Director duo Félix Lajeunesse and Paul Raphaël gave the astronauts free rein to capture whatever sparked their awe, and believe me, it's awe-inspiring!The first episode, "Adapt," throws you right into the morning huddle, then takes you on a tour of the station that's so real, you might instinctively duck to avoid bumping into a passing cosmonaut. And get this – even the not-so-glamorous moments make it to the cut. Remember that false alarm helmet-depressurization incident? You'll be right there, experiencing the crew's calm professionalism firsthand. No sugarcoating, just pure space truth in all its glory.But wait, there's more! More episodes are on the way, including a mind-blowing spacewalk sequence. So strap on your imaginary visor, get ready to defy gravity, and prepare to be blown away by the breathtaking beauty and raw emotion of life in the final frontier. This is ISS VR, and it's going to change the way you experience space forever.Bonus updates:

  • 2023 saw the arrival of a brand-new HTC Vive Focus 3 VR headset on the ISS, specifically designed to boost astronaut mental health with immersive experiences.
  • Scientists are exploring the potential of VR for training future astronauts on complex procedures and emergency situations.
  • The next phase of ISS VR plans to capture even more mind-blowing experiences, including close-ups of Earth and interactions with robotic arms.

This is just the beginning, space cadet! Buckle up, because the future of space exploration is virtual, and it's about to take your breath away.

Forget clunky flight sims – this is free-flowing movement with physics so real, you'll practically feel the weight of Mars in your spacesuit.Sure, the graphics might not be jaw-dropping Hollywood CGI, but who needs pixel-perfect textures when you're staring into the rusty abyss of Valles Marineris?

Mission: Red Planet VR isn't about points or trophies. It's about the thrill of discovery, the awe of standing on an alien world, the quiet contemplation of a sunset over crimson dunes. Think "Interstellar" meets "My First Martian Sandbox."But the Martian adventure doesn't end there. Blast back to Earth and lose yourself in the wonder of our solar system with the new Augmented Reality app. Explore 88 celestial bodies – moons, planets, even the sun itself – through your phone or tablet. Gaze at Saturn's rings shimmering like a cosmic disco ball, or zoom down Pluto's icy mountains on a virtual hoverboard.And if you crave even more VR goodness, check out Sketchfab – the YouTube of 3D models. Explore a universe of user-created wonders, from the Sistine Chapel to the Titanic (yeah, you can walk its decks!). The Smithsonian has even thrown their hat in the ring, offering models of the Apollo 11 and the Space Shuttle Discovery.Want to walk Armstrong's moonwalk? Sketchfab has you covered. And if you're feeling artistic, download a Martian landscape and sculpt your own alien masterpiece. The possibilities are endless!So, ditch the dusty telescopes and cramped planetariums.

  • Educational VR experiences are taking off, letting you learn about Mars' geology, history, and potential for life.

The Martian frontier is calling. Are you ready to answer? 

Sketchfab has become a place for 3D VR images and videos. I look forward to more space-related 3D content being uploaded in the future.

For my preference, VR interactions are not too realistic. Could you show me some place—ideally a place I cannot go in actual life—and I will figure out what to look at and think for myself, thanks. As of now, I like the variety of experiences in virtual reality. I enjoy riding alongside cosmonauts during a Soyuz launch, flying on a Boeing 747  past and future lunar explorers, and bouncing around on the moon with past and future lunar explorers. There are certainly much simpler VR films than I'm used to, but in each of them, I could get at least a little of a glimpse into what it might be like.

A "Rocket Party" is currently underway in Altspace VR,Social VR

 Is a roll of the dice. In a virtual movie theater once, there was a kid, apparently a Second Life resident. The kid didn't want to use his virtual money to buy virtual popcorn, but the next kid wouldn't take his voice without using his virtual money. The movie I saw was “How to Train Your Dragon”

Most likely you will definitely want to consider viewing the "Blue Girl" virtual reality experience in the AltspaceVR online community. You may not already be a big fan of Elon Musk's SpaceX, but if your anybody who has a blog, you'll want to go here and sign up for the free member YouTube channel. Or just scroll down a bit and click the big ‘Subscribe' button. It is a genuine possibility that everyone at the party is an introvert, but if you are open to the concept, you will have no problem striking up a conversation with the other party-goers. Please give in once for the fun of being at a Rocket Party, even if only for the moment. I have never seen rudeness, but note that popcorn was dumped on my head.
