Make selfi in space with the new AR-application from NASA

NASA has released two new applications that allow users to do selfies in the area and even visit a star system that has seven exoplanets the size of the Earth in virtual reality (VR).

The NASA Selfies app gives users the ability to take photos in a virtual spacesuit in front of some of the most picturesque places that space can offer. Landscapes include the centre of the Milky Way galaxy and the Orion Nebula.

"The app also provides scientific information with these stunning images. Currently, there are 30 beautiful pictures to choose from. Spitzer makes all of them. In the future, more images from other areas of space will be added, "said officials from the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory in the application statement, referring to

Another application that NASA has released is an excursion to the NASA VR exoplanets, which Trappist-1 demonstrates. It was there that in 2017 seven planets the size of the Earth was found. Although details about the state of the worlds and how suitable they are for life remain unclear, this does not stop the excitement of being able to visit them in the VR.

"Spitzer played an important role in discovering these planets and providing information that helped scientists learn about the likely compositions of the planets. The Trappist-1 system is too far for telescopes to observe these planets directly, but this VR experience shows the artists' impressions of how the planets can look. These materials are based on data from Spitzer and other telescopes that studied the Trappist-1 system, "NASA officials said.

The NASA Selfies app is now available for download on iOS and Android devices, giving users the opportunity to put themselves in the role of an astronaut. The NASA Exoplanet application is available for download through the official website of the demand for Oculus Rift and HTC Vive. The 360-degree experience presented on YouTube is already available to those people who want to look at the background without using any VR devices.
