Spacewalkers at ArtScience Museum lets you experience life as an astronaut

by Vera

Few actually make it to space — in fact, at the time of writing, it’s been recorded that only 244 people in the world have stepped foot into the International Space Station (ISS). Though, thanks to the diligent chronicling of space explorations by NASA, the literal out-of-this-world experience can be extended to us all on Earth.

Through the use of virtual reality (VR), you can retrace the footsteps of the first humans on the moon and put yourself through the terror they felt, all behind the safety of VR goggles.

Follow the Apollo programme from the time of its launch to its return to Earth, and experience the panoramic views painstakingly reconstructed from the image archives of the Apollo.

Less chartered territory, this second instalment looks at Apollo 11’s landing on Mars and its less-travelled landscape.
