As technology is advancing with time, different industries are coming up with ways of making their field better by day. Recently, the National Geographic Channel decided to take their industry to another level by going to space and shooting a new documentary from there. This will be the first documentary of its kind and it has long been awaited by their fan.
The National Geographic Channel has given its fans an anticipated surprise by revealing their first 3D, a 360-degree video which will be taken in space as part of their new innovation and documentary series known as “One Strange Rock”. A virtual tour has taken with the astronauts in testing the new mission on board of the International Space Station while listening to their thoughts and plans on how large space is left us speechless.
There was a special delivery that arrived at the space station in November last year known as a state-of-the-art Vuze VR camera. European Space Agency astronaut known as Paolo Nespoli was in charge of bringing this camera in his daily routine at the space station.
Paolo Nespoli has already received specialized training on operating the device from Darren Aronofsky who is a series filmmaker. Darren Aronofsky is the same filmmaker who gave a crash course to Italian astronaut in VR filming through Skype. To experience a full impact of the video, there is an available video providing simple guidelines and you can watch on your android phone while wearing your preferred VR headset.
The video going around on internet begins on low Earth orbit. There is an instrumental prelude that is playing as this space station approaches. The welcoming and firm of Chris Hadfield who is a retired Canadian astronaut represents relating how his close to six months in space changed his view of the world both metaphorically and literally.
As Chris Hadfield continues with his tale, Mae Jemison who is also a former NASA astronaut together with Nicole Stott and Mike Massimino joins in discussing their experience of planet Earth from the rarified viewpoint of their experience in the space station. Nespoli then carries the camera through the deep quarters of their space station. This provides the viewer with a 360-degree perspective of life on board the outpost in the space.
There are many breathtaking views on this video that will not only surprise you but also give you a new perspective of the world around you. Much can be said about it but a better understanding comes in viewing the video at the comfort of your house.
