Watch Artemis 1 Moon Launch on Virtual Reality on August 29
Through the Artemis Ascending virtual reality experience, you will get an immersive view of the epic NASA moon launch as it happens on August 29, 2022.
If you are a virtual reality space fan, you can catch up on one of the most momentous space events in recent times with the upcoming launch of NASA’s Artemis 1 mission in virtual reality. Dubbed Artemis Ascending, the experience gives you an immersive way of the launch pad as the mission lifts off and heads to the moon. You can watch the event on August 29th.
Space enthusiasts can take part in the Artemis Ascending livestream in a number of ways including via Horizon Worlds and on the Space Explorers page in Facebook 360. You can also do it via partners such as the Felix & Paul Studios company which will release immersive footage later on its website. Felix & Paul Studios says it will make the experience accessible through telecommunications providers as well as through domes and planetariums across the globe.
Fans viewing the experience will get a fairly realistic experience and will even get a feel of the NASA Space Launch System (SLS) megarocket as it makes its debut mission, lifting the Orion spacecraft on its voyage to the moon.
Felix & Paul Studios has lined up several cameras around the launch pad area. The cameras are placed at positions that would be too close for humans to get a close-up glimpse of the experience in real life. Viewers watching the launch mission in virtual reality will get an even more intimate experience of the launch than spectators that will be lined up in person at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida.
This will be a completely new experience compared to a similar mission to the moon in 1969 which was streamed on 2D screens in black and white. In the XR era, space fans now have the opportunity to experience these momentous and historic occasions in a very immersive and experiential way.
Felix & Paul Studios is a Montreal-based studio that has produced other immersive experiences in the past such as the “Space Explorers” series, comedy specials for “Just for Laughs” as well as productions and franchises for “Jurassic World.”
