NASA wants to give everyone the chance to journey to Mars... via virtual reality


The year 2016 is set to be a big one for virtual reality, with the likes of Oculus, HTC, and Sony all releasing VR headsets over the next 12 months. And for the early adopters, there's a new VR experience on the way that's designed to give you a taste of what life would be like on the Red Planet.

The Mars 2030 Experience is a collaboration between NASA, digital news outlet Fusion, and MIT's Space Systems Laboratory, and as Fortune reports, it's going to debut in March at the South by Southwest event in Texas. As well as working with the headsets mentioned above, it's going to be compatible with the cheaper Gear VR from Samsung and DIY kits based on Google Cardboard.
