The project, which is in collaboration with NASA, is an immersive VR production using custom-built cameras designed to operate in zero-gravity. With over 200 hours of filmed footage from the astronauts capturing their lives in space, the series gives audiences an inside look into a faraway perspective of Earth.
The series will feature real-life astronauts including David Saint-Jacques, Anne McClain, Nick Hague, Christina H. Koch, Jessica U. Meir, Luca Parmitano, Hazza Al Mansouri, and Andrew “Drew” Morgan, who are all currently stationed on the ISS, giving an insight into their daily lives.
The third and fourth episode of Space Explorers takes viewers on an immersive experience on what it’s like to float around in space. The episodes are set to drop later this year and will be available as a fully immersive VR experience on the Oculus Store to use on headsets and mobiles, and will be screened in select domes and planetariums.
