Designed for geosciences and education,
the virtual reality applications VR2Planets
will carry you to several body of our solar system
in high definition.
Travel to the breathtaking landscapes on Mars planet in an edutainment environment. Either flying over the lands or walking on the ground, you will see the whole scientific images available. You will lead an exploration to observe ice-fields, craters, volcanos or even the polar ice-caps, and interact with the Curiosity Rover and the Insight or ExoMars probes. This extremely realistic experience, will make you acquainted in full dimensions to the datasets collected by the American and European exploration missions.

Live again the Rosetta mission adventure and get close to the Chury comet (Churyumov-Gerasimenko/67P) thanks to this application using the extraordinary images sent by the orbital probe Rosetta and the Philae lander. Get immersed into the geological complexity of this small body by discovering its craters and dunes, shot from the orbit. Appreciate the images loaded during the Philae landing, an European exploration prowess.

Thanks to the spatial exploration mission Cassini-Huygens, the American orbital probe and the European lander collected an exceptional imagery data. Reach this extremely remote environment through this application recreating the controls sent to the robots (fly-over, image shots and landing) to explore this Saturn satellite.
