Mission: ISS is a ground-breaking, immersive virtual reality experience. Created in collaboration with NASA, Mission: ISS lets high school students explore the International Space Station in detail and understand what it’s like to be an astronaut in a way that’s never before been possible.
Our students use virtual reality to experience the workings and weightlessness of being part of the space station team. They learn how to move in a weightless environment, explore a virtual space station and carry out simulated tasks similar to those of the astronauts who work on the space station.
