Virtual reality will allow anyone to visit the ISS

In childhood many of us thought about how it must be amazing to be an astronaut to see the Earth from orbit, to see the stars, to experience weightlessness. Let's be honest: to become an astronaut is very, very difficult task to achieve which can only the most dedicated people, willing to spend years of his life to grueling physical training. But we have virtual reality, which, albeit not actually, but can let to anyone for a while to feel himself an inhabitant .

To implement this project to life employees of the company Oculus has joined forces with organizations such as NASA, ESA and the Canadian space Agency. The aim of the project was to create a realistic simulator for virtual reality, which will move the player inside the ISS and allow to feel the present . The simulation provides for user training, and even physical tasks like reception of the cargo, flown on a space truck with the surface of the Earth. The inhabitants of the ISS faced with this sort of thing all the time, but the players have it all to experience for the first time.

Of Course, we are unlikely to objectively assess the realism of everything that will happen in the simulator, because none of us have ever been to the ISS. But the developers claim that tried to make the game as realistic as possible and to move the huge number of tiny details that make up a complete picture of the life of astronauts in earth orbit. You will be able to observe the Earth from space, learn the history of the creation of the ISS, as well as at any time will be able to hear the stories of real astronauts about their stay at the station recorded in the format of 360-degree video. On sale this educational game should proceed in the near future.
