We’re pleased to announce the release of 6000 Moons, a data-driven virtual reality (VR) experience for exploring the orbits and function of the world’s satellites. It includes both a guided instructional tour, and a free mode which allows you to attach and fly along.
The Oculus VR platform is a fascinating canvas for simulation and visualization. To build 6000 Moons and its virtual globe, we combined publicly available flight and telemetry data with a computational simulation that spans CPU and GPU. And we deepened our commitment to the promise and challenge of virtual reality systems.
To download the experience, and learn more about the ways Bin’s approach to virtual reality systems might align with your work, visit our 6000 Moons page.
