Beijing time on December 23, news, according to foreign media reports, fusion media companies in the United States, Massachusetts Institute of technology and NASA (NASA) are cooperating in the development of a virtual reality research projects, the implementation of the project to allow users to far in the human astronauts really landed on the Martian surface before they can advance experience walk on Mars, the true feelings. According to the current estimates, human astronauts may be in the 30 years of this century to mars.
So, despite the fact that the U.S. space agency and other more than 20 years before the implementation of a manned landing on Mars, but no one has a virtual reality helmet, the earliest in the next year will be able to experience the feeling of landing on mars.
The project name is

One thing is certain, that is, the virtual reality version of the Mars rover will be interpreted in the Hollywood and the Mars is not quite the same. Cable Kapoor said, when people are in use
The project development team used the Engine Unreal 4 technology, the technology and the latest games, such as Games's "Street Fighter 5" or Entertainment Chair's "Spyjinx", the same technology. Experts will use this kind of professional development tool to reproduce the Martian surface environment, which gives the user the most real
As part of the development process, Sonne Cab group special visit the NASA Johnson Space Center and NASA simulator team members for the exchange, and American astronaut common test drive the future manned Mars rover prototype vehicle.
He pointed out that the physical principles of the simulation system has been widely used to help NASA's mission planners to develop a Mars exploration program to provide close to the real environment conditions to test whether the Martian Rover and other space systems are able to adapt to the space application environment.
