Immersion at the heart of the InSight mission
“Listen to the beating heart of Mars!"
Here it is! The VR application created for CNES dedicated to InSight mission, showing a homemade 3D model of the lander and a huge work photogrammetry on real images :
The application developed by VR2Planets for SISMOC (SeIS on Mars Operation Center : the InSight mission center of CNES* based in Toulouse) presents in a new way the working environment of the Mars probe.
InSight-VR invites to relive the adventures of the lander since its landing on Mars on November 26, 2018, as well as the seismic exploration of the mission’s main instrument: SEIS (Seismic Experiment for Interior Structure).
Ambassador of SISMOC, this immersive experience allows to discover:
- A 3D model of the lander Insight in very high fidelity
- The landing site reconstructed from the real data by photogrammetric method on more than 200m² around the probe
- The deployment process of the French instrument SEIS, the seismometer
- The interior of SEIS
- A simulation of seismic wave propagation on the surface of Mars compared to the real data recorded by the seismometer
