    Hey NFL fans!

    As we all know, the big game is almost here! I stumble upon something interesting. For the next few days before the Super Bowl, there is an event called Super Bowl Live. It has live music, food and interactive exhibits.

    One of the interactive events is called Future Flight. It's a VR Mars ride by NASA. Yep... you red that right NASA. The space agency made a VR ride! You start by getting into a shuttle then you take off for Mars all while viewing actual recorded footage. The journey ends when you drop 90 feet back to Earth on the 50 yard line at NRG stadium. "In time for the Super Bowl". To bad the ride itself only last 2 minutes.

    Here is a picture of what the ride looks like: (One up close, the other from a few feet away)

    This ride looks and sounds so cool. This is a very cool concept of a "space flight simulator" the whole world can experience. To bad it is only during the Super Bowl Live event.

    The first link of this post contains the Super Bowl Live schedule for those who will be attending the Super Bowl.

    What you guys think? Should more VR rides such as this be made?
