EPO SolarStormVR

Solar Storm VR is a virtual reality experience that let you witness the birth of a solar storm at the Sun, its journey in the heliosphere and how it impacts the solar system - including the Earth.

It uses scientific data from current space missions (such as ESA's and NASA's space telescopes) mixed with visual effects for a highly cinematographic result.

This is an Educational and Public Outreach (EPO) project, initiated by Dr Miho Janvier (Institut d'Astrophysique Spatiale, France) and Tom Saville (Treehouse Digital, UK) that aims at: " inspiring, enthusing and educating the general public, from kids to adults, about space science, and in particular solar storms".
