About

Apollo 11 VR is a first person experience of the interior of the 1969 Command Module. Explore the cockpit firsthand in an authentic model of the interior based on scans from the Smithsonian. This is the 50th anniversary of the historic landing where Buzz Aldrin and Neal Armstrong walked on the surface of the moon on a site name Tranquility Base.

The Apollo spacecraft had three parts: a command module (CM) with a cabin for the three astronauts, and the only part that returned to Earth; a service module (SM), which supported the command module with propulsion, electrical power, oxygen, and water; and a lunar module (LM) that had two stages – a descent stage for landing on the Moon, and an ascent stage to place the astronauts back into lunar orbit. The astronauts used Eagle's ascent stage to lift off from the lunar surface and rejoin Collins in the command module. They jettisoned Eagle before they performed the maneuvers that propelled the ship out of the last of its 30 lunar orbits on a trajectory back to Earth. They returned to Earth and splashed down in the Pacific Ocean on July 24 after more than eight days in space.

Armstrong's first step onto the lunar surface was broadcast on live TV to a worldwide audience. He described the event as "one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind."

The Institute for Digital Intermedia Arts (IDIA Lab) at Ball State University explores the intersection between the arts, science, and technology. Scholarly, creative and pedagogical projects investigate virtual reality, human computer interface (HCI), augmented reality, mobile apps, visualization and 3D simulation.

I am so glad, that I supported “The Apollo-11-VR-Experience” on Kickstarter! Its worth every penny and truly inspiring. There is so much love to detail in ths project – that's just incredible. For VR-Education it's the best example what VR can do. Buy it and enjoy your ride to the moon!

This, I call it, learning app gives you the Moon landing better than any N24 Documentary could. Everything is already the Feeling of how tiny you actually are when you are standing in front of the Saturn Rocket is gigantic. A lot is explained and the graphic Implementation is great. In total, it takes between 45-60 Minutes to get through. There are a few interactive Elements, but nothing outstanding. Recommended for Sci-Fi/space interested, it shows well in which Direction Education could go in the future. For the Effort in the Creation, the Price is justified, although the Reviewer value is rather not as high.

This was my first VR experience, absolutely depart, no I don't suffer from motion sickness, but can be professional dependent as I work in large high:)) I'm dizzy free etc ... :) When you look out at the start of the window, you really have the feeling of being there, the moonside landing as such has always interested me, already as a little child, now being virtually mid-the-atribe is somehow the fulfillment of a kindity dream. I would like to thank the programmers for this. Works Flawlessly without error bugs ect. At some point I also manage to land the ferry xD the playing time is right net completely with me I'm asleep 2 times * grins *. I Love it ...

Apollo 11 VR is not a Game, but a virtual Experience. You can experience the Take-off and Flight of the Apollo 11 in an abridged Time (I guess 15-20 Minutes). Various Key Scenes are used for this, such as the Entry Into the Spacecraft, the Launch, the first Minutes in Space and various Views in Space. Apollo 11 impresses here with a relatively large Level of Detail, although the Graphics could be even more realistic in places. For Example, the Cockpit seems very realistic and also the View you have in the Spacecraft itself is significantly smaller than you would actually guess. Overall, this Experience makes a good Impression and is definitely always good if you want to show someone VR once. Unfortunately, there are also a few Scenes that may cause some Nausea, but that depends on how sensitive you are. Unfortunately, the Price is a bit high, who is still interested, as such a Flight must have felt at least visually, is well advised when it strikes. Alternatively, you can always wait if it is on Offer;).
