An Oculus experience created in collaboration with NASA and the Canadian and European space agencies that will allow us to explore the International Space Station for free with Rift and Touch.
Oculus has announced a new free experience called Mission: ISS, in which we will become an astronaut of the International Space Station and we will have the opportunity to explore it to the smallest detail, since it has been faithfully recreated thanks to models of the station and the collaboration of multiple astronauts. Many people have always dreamed of going to space, and now they will be able to fulfill that dream in this Touch-compatible simulation in which we will use our hands to dock cargo capsules, perform spacewalks and carry out critical tasks.
The experience has been developed by Magnopus, a team whose founders hold an Oscar for special effects. Mission: ISS will allow us to learn the history of the station and get to know the stories of different astronauts through a series of immersive videos. Oculus plans to bring a pilot experience to high schools in the United States in order to bring the experience closer to students. In turn, they have also announced that they have sent an Oculus Rift into space for astronaut Thomas Pesquet to perform a series of experiments related to zero gravity on humans. Mission: ISS is now available on the Oculus store and is free to download.
