    The experience that suggests SpaceVR would be different from already existed 360-degree videos. SpaceVR gives the possibility to travel and investigate the universe. Everyone can take the virtual tour to the space using various VR helmets from expensive Oculus Rift to the cheapest Google Cardboard.

    In 2016 April, SpaceVR has got 1.25 million dollar investment, and all the money went to the development Overview 1, which is the first VR satellite. In June of 2017, SpaceVR will send its Overview 1 with 360° cameras to the earth utilizing SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket. They are partnering with NanoRacks, which suggests services for the commercial usage of space.

    VR tour is available by pre ordering on the SpaceVR website.

    Man, what a dreamy experience it will be!

    I know a lot of people will star to say they are seeing aliens and stuff, but if I enjoyed a lot the experience with the "Invasion" short in the part where we are just looking at earth.
