Jay Torres, the Deputy Rover Planning Subsystem Lead at The NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory will be flying into London exclusively to join us for Virtual Reality Show!
Today, physics-based simulations are helping NASA mission planners on the Journey to Mars, providing virtual environments to test vehicle and system performance in simulated deep space environments. These allow Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo crews to spend one-third or more of their total training time in simulators and Lunar landing crews to use simulators for more than half of theirs.
Virtual Reality also provides a compelling method for NASA to ‘share the work we’ve been doing to design sustainable human missions and to inspire the next generation of pioneers in space’. Jay Torres will be sharing some of the amazing VR applications that NASA has been developing, both on the showfloor and in our conference.
