Ground control to all wannabe space rangers – NASA is taking you to infinity and beyond with its virtual and augmented reality (AR) tours. Through NASA at Home, you can live your astronaut dreams via 360-degree virtual walkthroughs of the space stations, visualisations of other planets, e-books about the solar system, and informative videos and interesting podcasts discussing all things space including past Apollo missions too – and it's all for free.
Embark on a space journey – with your feet planted on the ground – with virtual 360-degree tours around the Hubble Space Telescope mission operations centre, the International Space Station, and the Trappist-1 star system with NASA's Exoplanet Excursions. Some of these tours can be viewed in 3D, so dust off your 3D goggles and strap yourself into the pilot's seat of a NASA spacecraft – virtually.
Not just for stargazing adults, your mini budding astronauts can also have some fun exploring the universe too. With Earth at a standstill right now, embarking on a trip to the final frontier could just be tonic you need. For more information, visit NASA at Home.
