VR Experience: Travel to Mars

Buzz Aldrin, an Apollo 11 astronaut who was the second person to walk on the moon after Neil Armstrong, is narrating a virtual reality project created by Life VR, Time and the tech company 8i.

The project is called “Buzz Aldrin: Cycling Pathways to Mars.” Viewers using at-home virtual reality headsets will be able to follow a 3D hologram of Aldrin as he travels from the Sea of Tranquility on the moon, where he landed nearly 50 years ago, to the possible site of a future Mars colony.

The experience was released March 17 on Steam and Viveport for HTC Live, and came shortly after to the Oculus Rift. A 360-degree trailer is available on Apple’s App Store and on Google Play.
