Turn Yourself Into an Astronaut (With a Little Help from Virtual Reality)
With the help of SpaceVR's Overview One program, everyone will see the Pale Blue Dot from space
Of the 108 billion homo sapiens who have lived on Planet Earth, 568 have seen what it looks like from orbit. SpaceVR‘s Overview One program wants to democratize that experience by giving users a virtual reality point-of-view experience, linking astronauts with the public still stuck “dirtside.”
This project proposes to use a 360-degree 3D camera to broadcast a feed compatible with any VR device. The camera will be mounted at the bottom of the International Space Station, giving viewers a view of Earth from above previously only available to astronauts.
