A new VR title, Shuttle Commander, will let you recreate the Hubble Telescope Missions. Shuttle Commander is planned for “all major VR platforms” in 2019 but currently does not have a specific release date.
The experience will offer “accurate recreations of the space missions, the shuttle cockpit and Hubble Space Telescope” and allow you to play through various different aspects of the Hubble missions. You’ll be able to play as a member of the Shuttle crew, take part in deployment, upgrade and servicing of the telescope and land the Shuttle back on Earth. There will even be scoreboards and achievements for shuttle landings.
Shuttle Commander is developed by Immersive VR Education — the creators behind a series of educational VR projects including Apollo 11 — and the new project also allows you to “experience the discoveries of the Hubble Telescope and how it changed our understanding of the universe around us.” According to the description on their YouTube video, Shuttle Commander will be available on “all major VR platforms” this year and trailer itself also features the Oculus, Vive, SteamVR logo and PlayStation logos.
Will you be launching off into space when Shuttle Commander lifts off later this year? Let us know in the comments below.
