How do we create a Web VR Experiment that is easy to access and will educate people about the journey of the Curiosity Rover on the red planet?
Access Mars gave Google a unique opportunity to work with NASA to leverage their VR technology and put humanity on the red planet. This Web VR experiment is the closest a human can get to setting foot on Mars. Only a few days post-launch, users collectively spent 340,800 minutes on Mars. We built a pipeline enabling NASA JPL to periodically update the data to show the rover’s current location.
Create a Web VR Experiment that allows users from any VR device with access to a browser to experience the red planet. We utilized NASAs photogrammetry dataset to let people walk around and learn about 5 key locations the Curiosity Rover has traveled to: The Landing Site, Marias Pass, Pahrump Hills, Murray Buttes, and the rovers current location.
