VR Education are pleased to announce that the Group’s award-winning showcase experience, Apollo 11 VR, has been launched as a simulator experience at the U.S. Space & Rocket Centre, Hunstville, Alabama.
The 20 July 2019 marks 50 years since Apollo 11 landed on the moon. American astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin were the first men to step onto the lunar surface, and Armstrong’s “one small step” has been talked about for decades. It is one of the most celebrated events of the past century.
To commemorate this, a number of destinations across the U.S. will be marking this achievement with a series of events and specialized exhibitions, including the U.S. Space and Rocket Centre, which is home to the renowned Space Camp.
David Whelan, CEO of VR Education, said:
“We’re delighted to be included as part of the 50th anniversary celebrations at the U.S. Space & Rocket Centre. Apollo 11 VR has been one of our most successful experiences to date and now accessible to many people who may not have experienced virtual reality before. The initial days have shown great interest in the experience.”
