Virtual Reality Space Simulation
So, what exactly does our platform offer? Here are some of the main features that you should expect to enjoy with Titan of Space:
- A self-paced guided tour of space. The program allows you to choose your own space adventure and move through the simulation at your preferred pace.
- Scientifically accurate information on more than 40 space entities (including stars and planets).
- Stunning visuals and an engaging soundtrack.
Who Is This Product Made for?
This product is suitable for anyone who is interested in the marvels of space. All the information, data and facts included in the programme are accurate. This makes it perfect for those with more scholarly intentions. The simulation itself is also quite visually stunning, making it an entertaining experience. So, whether you want to experience something cool or if you want to learn more about space, this product is for you.
What Tech Do You Need?
The Titan of Space programme works on most virtual reality (VR) consumer products available. You can enjoy it as an app on your mobile device (if it is compatible with VR) or on a PC/laptop.
Looking at Space the Benefits
Our service primarily consists of a virtual reality space tour. While VR technology is becoming more affordable and accessible on the market, it still hasn’t achieved true mainstream acceptance. For those who are unfamiliar with the technology, what are the benefits that they might get from experiencing a simulated space adventure?
It Puts Space Travel Achievements in Perspective
Most of us are aware of the accomplishments already done in space exploration and travel. Still, it is hard to truly grasp them when viewing them theoretically. With an accurate VR space tour, you can truly appreciate great feats in space exploration such as the moon missions and the development of the International Space Station. This will also help you understand future space missions such as a crewed mission to Mars.
Helps You Understand the Workings of Certain Technologies
Space travel has facilitated numerous technologies that we use every day. This is especially true for the telecommunications sector where satellites have revolutionised global communication and the entertainment industry (satellite TV). GPS tracking and digital maps are also supported by the satellite infrastructures orbiting the earth.
Gives You a Better Perspective on the History of the Universe
It is estimated that the universe is 13 billion years old. Humans have been around for ‘only’ six million years. Having a better understanding of space, and the age of other celestial bodies is one of the best ways to truly grasp the history of the universe.
It is a Good Starting Point for VR Newbies
If you have never experienced virtual reality before, then a space tour is one of the best entry points. You will be experiencing virtual reality within a familiar concept (space exploration). It also requires minimal input from users which makes it less overwhelming than other VR applications such as gaming.
Computing in the Stars and Launching a Super Computer Into Space
For space travel to happen efficiently, the need for supercomputers has always been a significant factor. For a long time, scientists used earth stationed computers until Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) and NASA came up with a better solution.
Thanks to Dr. Mark Fernandez, Hewlett Packard’s tech officer for HPE, a supercomputer was launched into space, a little over two years ago. The Spaceborne computer was set to fly aboard the International Space Station hence proving that a high-performance computer could survive in space. The computer went through several tests before its launch to ensure that it worked as it ought to. It was later launched into space, allowing it to collect as much information as possible before its travel back home.
The History Behind the Race to Computing in the Stars
The Spaceborne project had taken over three years before its launch. The project was initially NASA’s until they discovered that the road to Mars would be longer than they expected. In a meeting in 2014 with HPE, NASA submitted their project, hoping that the initial plan would serve as a foundation for something practical.
Fernandez and his team took the challenge and launched the supercomputer in 2017. The computer collected some excellent information to help the team find a way to get information in real-time, not 24 minutes later, as it had been before.
It has always been costly to power and cool a supercomputer. This has not been the case for a device in space. Tapping into the Moderate Temperature Loop, which keeps the human environment within certain temperatures in space, has made cooling easier by expelling heat, then releasing it into space for free.
Right temperature conditions in space have allowed the Entry, Descent, and Landing (EDL) software on the supercomputer to work effectively hence monitoring the landing possibilities on Mars. More research is still under test before a final verdict can be made.
