In 2014 a group of researchers at the Surrey Space Centre launched an ambitious project to send a cluster of GoPro cameras on a high altitude weather balloon, and use the footage to create a virtual reality ride to space. This is a made for VR experience that uses real world HD video footage to recreate the experience of flying to an altitude of 30 km on a floating platform, and a VR environment that allows users to warp to set altitudes above the earth.

If you're anything like me, then you've been dreaming about traveling to space since you can remember. But if you're not an astronaut, and you don't happen to be sitting on a mountain made of money, then this simply won't happen by sitting around and waiting. Fewer than 600 people have ever traveled to space. Lucky them... but what about the rest of us? This software is about enabling us, the remaining 99.999992%, to get that experience.
