Space 360: Experience NASA Missions in VR/AR/Video

Mar 12, 2017

12:30pm – 1:30pm CT

There will be an encore presentation of this session on Sunday, March 12 at 2:00pm. Austin Convention Center, Room 9ab.

Space exploration has been the realm of robots and astronauts -- until now. NASA is using immersive storytelling tools like Facebook 360, YouTube 360, Google Cardboard and Microsoft HoloLens to convert mission data into shared experiences for people on Earth. As both content producer and content provider, see how and why NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory shares its robotic missions, from the Curiosity rover on Mars to the Juno spacecraft at Jupiter, and beyond. Meet the producers behind the projects, see the tools for yourself, and get resources to create your own space VR/AR and 360 videos. We'll travel through space without ever leaving Austin.
