Space is, as they say, the final frontier. That is until a human lands on another planet and starts looking for another frontier to explore. We’re still a ways off from making “The Martian” happen in real life, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still explore Mars! The best part is you can go home at the end of the day instead of being trapped all alone on the Red Planet. Mars 2030 uses virtual reality powered by real NASA data and will allow users to perform realistic missions. While that should only take about 15 minutes from start to finish, you can choose to explore to your heart’s content rather than tackle the work from the get-go. Those of you heading to SXSW 2016 will be able to experience it firsthand and will hopefully be available on major virtual reality platforms shortly after.
