Walking through space in NASA’s Virtual Reality Lab

Spread the love

In the second episode of Space Craft, Loren Grush learns how NASA trains its astronauts before sending them to space. Simulating the space environment — either with a giant pool or with virtual reality — helps astronauts prepare for scenarios both planned and unplanned.

    btw, i would like to know more about the hardware they used there. Like tell us about the (special looking) VR headset they use, about your controllers, about how they manage to make you not very nauseous when you do rolls etc, like do they have a GVS system or what do they do in hardware or software etc.

    I understand it's simulation and science more important than pretty graphics but why those simulators can't have more realistic graphics instead of makings astronauts train in the environment which look like from year 2000….. NASA can't afford graphics cards?
    Otherwise great series love it!^^

    its cool illusion experience cause NASA never land to moon or reach space lol

    Really like Loren's video of space science. Love watching them. Keep on these great work Loren.

    in an absolute worst case there are most likely several ways to retrieve a lost astronaut, including moving the entire station to get them. it's only a metre or two of relative velocity.

    but can you ghost ride the virtual whip?

    I can't help but feel like there's a whole generation of people playing games that would find both the SAFER and rover systems intuitive. It's nice to imagine that the industry i'm in might be part in teaching people things that will be useful in the future.

    Please make more episodes of this series. Its immersive and interesting.

    Why are the graphics so basic? You'd think they could program a much more complex and subtly textured VR envrionment.

    How does the rover stick to the ground when there is little gravity?
