The XReality Center at the World Science Festival – Exploring the Frontiers of Space in VR

The XReality Center is excited to join the World Science Festival events this weekend by presenting Exploring The Frontiers of Space in Virtual Reality. The XReality Center team will facilitate an interactive exploration, Exploring the Frontiers of Space in Virtual Reality where participants will travel the universe and take an immersive tour of the James Webb Space Telescope.  In VR, participants will visit our own cosmic neighborhood—the Solar System and walk The International Space Station.

The World Science Festival gathers great minds in science and the arts to produce live and digital content that allows a broad general audience to engage with scientific discoveries. Through discussions, debates, theatrical works, interactive explorations, musical performances, and major outdoor experiences, the World Science Festival takes science out of the laboratory and into the streets, parks, museums, and galleries venues of New York City.
