Space Walk – Follow along in Virtual Reality

EVA #35 on the International Space Station is a space walk performed by NASA astronaut Tim Kopra and ESA astronaut Tim Peake on 15th January 2016, with a focus on the replacement of a failed voltage regulator.

Using my ISS VR Experience it is possible to follow along as the astronauts perform their activities. The experience was created in Unity3D and runs in a web browser or as a standalone Windows app which runs in Virtual Reality of an Oculus Rift is attached. If your system allows it run it standalone with graphics set to “fantastic”.
