Everybody is excited by the VR technology, but people would have never thought of using it to remind them of Earth when they will be on a space journey. Astronomers are considering of implementing VR devices for astronauts when they will reach Mars. They could use this technology to remember their home when they’ll be exploring alien lands. If they get the feeling of isolation out there, they will immediately use the VR device to remember their families and homes.
- Astronomers are thinking of ways to connect astronauts with their planet when they will be on a mission.
- VR technology could be a useful friend which will help astronauts when they will feel alone.
Scientists are still working on this virtual reality experience that is meant to help astronauts feel connected with their planet. NASA, 8i, and Smart Information Flow Technology could help experts develop this device. The central goal will be to implement a digital library full of inspirational ideas which will motivate astronauts and establish a connection between them and their families.
Through the VR device, astronauts will constantly be reminded their purpose on the Red Planet and it will boost their confidence to help achieve greater information. NASA wants to remind us of the videotaped messages from 2001 where Buzz Aldrin was describing his opinion about Mars, and Reggie Watts was performing some beat-boxing. The scientists who were then in that simulation program called HI-SEAS have just received their recordings. In 2017 another similar study will be conducted being a second HI-SEAS simulation experiment.
If you want to see the VR videos, you will just need to use Google Cupboard. It is said that there could also be issued the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive versions. The recordings of Aldrin and Watts will be transformed into VR until 2017 when 8i will help the uploading of these files on the Life VR platform.
Even if you will not able to be there with them and see and experience the things they do, you will at least have the chance to observe the way they live when in a Mars mission. Their life and their activities considering the mission will be cleared out for everybody. You will be able to analyze how tough it is to work up there and then look at the blue little spot like Earth on which your family awaits you. They need to feel encouraged to complete the mission and reach back home.
