Want to travel into space without leaving the comfort of your computer screen?
Eyes In Space, an interactive website, lets you virtually travel up into the cosmos on a balloon as it ascends into space, allowing you to look around 360 degrees as you slowly float upwards seeing the incredible Earth.
“Seven billion people on planet earth, of which only 536 are lucky enough to have seen space.
Eyes In Space aspire to change this, taking everyone on a personal journey to roam the cosmos.
The collective’s maiden voyage allows everyone to wander space freely using immersive 360-film to create an endless, all-sensory experience.
The galactic journey is accompanied by José González’ newest release.
Eyes In Space is a global collective established to mesh artistic experiment with scientific innovation to open new worlds. Space is the collective’s first destination.” (via)
Talking about exploration, European robot probe has made the first, historic landing on a comet just yesterday. Called the Rosetta mission it involved launching a lander called Philae onto Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko from the Rosetta mothership. This mission gives scientists their first chance to ride a comet and study close up what happens as it gets closer to the sun. Good luck little guy!
