From the development studio behind awarding winning titles such as Apollo 11 VR and Titanic VR comes their new title Shuttle Commander an educational based game that puts you in the pilot seat for some of Americas most important missions following Neil Armstrong’s first steps on the moon.
568 kilometres above us, the Hubble Space Telescope circles the Earth. For almost 30 years, this observatory has helped us explore the solar system around us and understand how galaxies and planets form. Now you can embark along the journey of discovery with this modern-age marvel. Shuttle Commander allows you to take part in the Hubble Space Telescope missions first hand with accurate recreations of the space missions, shuttle cockpit and Hubble Space Telescope.
Join the crew on the space shuttle missions and assist in the deployment and servicing of the Hubble. You will be responsible for the safe deployment and recovery of Hubble on various missions and complete important tasks such as vital fixes undertaken back in 1993 to correct a flaw in Hubble’s main mirror.
Celebrate the discoveries and experience how this remarkable apparatus changed our understanding of the universe around us through science visualization segments which are based on actual data discovered by the Hubble Space Telescope over the past 3 decades. Using this data, the developers at Immersive VR Education have plotted several hundred thousand stars for an accurate recreation of our Milky Way galaxy which you can explore.
Immersive VR Education worked with the developers of the highly popular F-Sim to create an accurate physics-based Space Shuttle landing simulation where players can land at real locations such as White Sands, Kennedy Space Centre or Edwards Airforce Base. Variables such as weather, time of day, approach and turbulence can be edited by players so that even seasoned pilots will be challenged to make a perfect landing.
Finally, as part of Shuttle Commander the team at Immersive VR Education have also produced an animation showing a Shuttle launch from inside the cockpit of Space Shuttle Discovery. This launch animation is 16 minutes long and shows in real time what astronauts experience in this remarkable spacecraft.
Shuttle Commander: Hubble Space Telescope Missions is coming to PlayStation VR first with releases on Oculus Rift, Vive, Windows MR and Oculus Quest later this year.
