Virtual Reality

Virtual reality, once confined to computer gaming can now show us the world and new worlds in surprisingly real detail. These worlds can be accessed through multiple VR viewers and reflect orbital spacecraft, spacecraft and instrument assembly labs, and actual NASA data and models of physical phenomena. Walk into new worlds and let your imagination soar.
