Space VR developed by Cornwall university students

UK Space News

A group of students at Falmouth University have developed a virtual reality (VR) space to enhance STEM learning experiences.

The VR space provides an immersive educational environment and will be available at the UK Space Agency’s ‘Space for Everyone’ tour from today, 1st June 2023.

It includes highly detailed interactive simulations, virtual tours of various subjects, and even a virtual version of UK astronaut Tim Peake.

The students hope that the VR space will help bridge the gap between theoretical knowledge and practical understanding of space subjects.

The experience promises to transport people of all ages into the vastness of outer space, allowing them to explore planets, asteroids, and galaxies.

The initiative also helps highlight the need for people in many roles to help with opening up new avenues for learning and exploration in the UK space sector.
