NASA VR: Fly Over Ceres with the Dawn Spacecraft (360 video)
Occator Crater on Ceres is home to the brightest area on the entire dwarf planet. At 57 miles (92 kilometers) wide and 2.5 miles (4 kilometers) deep, Occator displays evidence of recent geologic activity. NASA's Dawn mission found that the bright spots may have been produced by upwelling of salt-rich liquids after the impact that formed the crater. Pan and zoom as you fly over the crater with Dawn in this 360-degree animation made with observations from the spacecraft.Important note: Not all browsers support viewing 360 videos/images.

NASA's Curiosity Mars Rover at Ogunquit Beach (360 View)
This 360-degree panorama was acquired by the Mast Camera (Mastcam) on NASA's Curiosity rover looking out over part of an area called Bagnold Dunes, which stretch for miles on Mars. This location, called "Ogunquit Beach," is on the northwestern flank of lower Mount Sharp. Points of interest include the dune’s ripples, and bedrock made from sediments deposited in lakes billions of years ago.
From February to April 2017, Curiosity examined linear sand dunes to compare with what it found in 2015 and 2016 during an investigation of crescent-shaped dunes. This two-phase campaign is the first close-up study of active dunes anywhere other than Earth.
This panorama was stitched together from 115 individual images acquired on March 24-25, 2017, (PST) during the 1,647th Martian day, or sol, of Curiosity's work on Mars. The rover's position on Sol 1647 is shown at https://mars.nasa.gov/multimedia/images/2017/curiositys-traverse-map-through-sol-1646 as the location reached by a drive on Sol 1646.The scene is presented with a color adjustment that approximates white balancing, to resemble how the rocks and sand would appear under daytime lighting conditions on Earth.

Huygens descent to Titan in 360°
Huygens was an atmospheric entry probe that landed successfully on Saturn's moon Titan in 2005, it was part of the Cassini–Huygens mission and became the first spacecraft ever to land on Titan and the furthest landing from Earth a spacecraft has ever made.
Huygens was designed to enter and brake in Titan's atmosphere and parachute a fully instrumented robotic laboratory to the surface. When the mission was planned, it was not yet certain whether the landing site would be a mountain range, a flat plain, an ocean, or something else, and it was hoped that analysis of data from Cassini would help to answer these questions. Assuming the landing site could be non-solid, Huygens was designed to survive the impact, splash down on a liquid surface on Titan, and send back data for several minutes on the conditions.
The spacecraft had no more than three hours of battery life, most of which was planned to be used during the descent. Engineers expected to get at most only 30 minutes of data from the surface.Subscribe for more Space wonders on ΥουΤυbe: https://tinyurl.com/SpaceTelescopesYouTube

Panoramic view of the Milkyway in 360°
The Milky Way is the galaxy that contains our Solar System. The term "Milky Way" is a translation of the Latin via lactea, from the Greek γαλαξίας κύκλος (galaxías kýklos, "milky circle"). From Earth, the Milky Way appears as a band because its disk-shaped structure is viewed from within. The Milky Way is a barred spiral galaxy and it is estimated to contain 100–400 billion stars. There are likely at least 100 billion planets in the Milky Way.
The Solar System is located within the disk, about 27,000 light-years from the Galactic Center, on the inner edge of one of the spiral-shaped concentrations of gas and dust called the Orion Arm. The stars in the inner region of the galaxy form a bulge and one or more bars that radiate from the bulge. The very center is marked by an intense radio source, named Sagittarius A*, which is likely to be a supermassive black hole.Subscribe for more Space wonders on ΥουΤυbe: https://tinyurl.com/SpaceTelescopesYouTube
Cool VR walk on the moon with NASA
From the USA TODAY NETWORK and YouTube, it’s VRtually There, a weekly adventure with three cool VR experiences.Ride the world’s tallest roller coaster!Maybe you love roller coasters. Maybe you’d never set foot on a roller coaster, never mind the world’s tallest. Whether you’re a coaster freak or fraidy cat, you’ve got to take a virtual ride on the Kingda Ka at Six Flags Great Adventure in Jackson Township, New Jersey.And it’s not just the tallest – it’s also the world’s second fastest. You can almost hear your heart pounding through the screams and rushing wind as the Kingda Ka makes its insane 456-foot ascent – and plummet.Walk on the surface of the moon!It’s time for a hard truth: It’s probably too late to be an astronaut when you grow up. And even if you could, chances are you’d never set foot on the moon – we haven’t personally visited that luminous satellite in over 40 years.So, no magical moon missions for you. But thanks to NASA and the Project Apollo Archive, now you can at least feel like you’ve been.In 1972, American astronauts Eugene Cernan and Jack Schmitt were the last men to land on the moon. They brought with them an American flag, some Hasselblad cameras, giddy exuberance and a great sense of humor.They took hundreds of detailed photos of the moon’s surface, documenting their landing in exhausting detail. Last year, Project Apollo Archive made available over 8,400 unprocessed, high-resolution photos from that mission.We’ve stitched 25 of them together into an astonishing panorama that puts you on the surface of the moon!You can lose yourself for days in their Flickr feed: https://www.flickr.com/photos/projectapolloarchiveTake a beautiful trip in virtual reality to Yosemite Park with Ken BurnsThe National Parks Service turned 100 this year, and there are few places on earth more majestic to celebrate its centennial than Yosemite National Park. You might not be able to make the trip to California’s Sierra Nevada mountains, but you can still go there.And what better park guide than Ken Burns?The documentarian and director of “The National Parks: America's Best Idea” lends his voice and his insight on of the world’s most magical spots, musing on the mystical nature of its beauty – and even goes so far to say Yosemite brings you closer to God. Gazing at the granite cliffs of El Capitan, you start to feel it, too.Take a breath. Take it in. And don’t forget to look around!

NASA's Curiosity Mars Rover at Naukluft Plateau (360 View)
Explore this Mars panorama in 360-degrees by moving the view with your mouse or mobile device. This mid-afternoon, 360-degree panorama was acquired by the Mast Camera (Mastcam) on NASA's Curiosity Mars rover on April 4, 2016. The scene is presented with a color adjustment that approximates white balancing, to resemble how the rocks and sand would appear under daytime lighting conditions on Earth.The view combines dozens of images taken during the mission's 1,302nd sol, or Martian day, by Mastcam's left-eye camera from a location on top of what rover team members call "Naukluft Plateau" on lower Mount Sharp, which stands inside Gale Crater. The science goals of this panorama called only for terrain images, which is why frames showing the sky and rover hardware were not imaged or included in the mosaic.This science mosaic is part of long-term campaign to document the geology along the rover's traverse since landing in August 2012.The foreground and middle distance show a geologic scene dominated by eroded remnants of a finely layered ancient sandstone deposit. The sandstone here appears to be dominated by thick layers of windblown sand, suggesting that these deposits formed in a drier epoch.For more info about this panorama, visit:

Spiral Galaxies collision in 360°
In this scientific visualisation of a computer simulation, two spiral galaxies are set on a collision course. As one slices through the other, both are disrupted. The tidal forces of gravity produce long tails of material streaming away from the collision. The central regions relatively quickly fall together and merge.The visualisation is based on a supercomputer simulation, which calculated the motions of 262 144 particles under the forces of gravity and hydrodynamics. The gas particles are shown in blue and the stars in yellow. Each particle is visualised with a size corresponding to its effective size in the calculation.Credit:

Opportunity rover at the rim of the Endurance crater in 360°
Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity shows the impact crater known as "Endurance." Scientists are eager to explore Endurance for clues to the red planet's history. The crater's exposed walls provide a window to what lies beneath the surface of Mars and thus what geologic processes occurred there in the past. While recent studies of the smaller crater nicknamed "Eagle" revealed an evaporating body of salty water, that crater was not deep enough to indicate what came before the water. Endurance may be able to help answer this question, but the challenge is getting to the scientific targets: most of the crater's rocks are embedded in vertical cliffs.Subscribe for more Space wonders on ΥουΤυbe: https://tinyurl.com/SpaceTelescopesYouTube

Scientists chose this particular site for digging because previous data taken by the rover's miniature thermal emission spectrometer indicated that it contains crystalline hematite, a mineral that sometimes forms in the presence of water. Opportunity's lander is in the center of the image, and to the left is the rock outcrop lining the inner edge of the small crater that encircles the rover and lander.

This rocky panoramic scene is the second picture of the Martian surface that was taken by Viking Lander 2 shortly after touchdown. The site is on a northern plain of Mars, known as Utopia Planitia. The picture sweeps around 330 degrees in azimuth, starting from northwest at the left through north (above the sampler arm housing) past east, where the sky is bright at the center, and southeast toward the right above the radioisotope thermoelectric generator cover. The surface is strewn with rocks out to the horizon, ranging in size up to several meters across. Some pitted rocks resemble fragments of porous volcanic lava. Other rocks have grooves that may have been eroded by windblown sand and dust. Although fine-grained material is seen between the boulders, no sand dunes are evident. The dip in the eastern horizon at the center is an illusion caused by an 8-degree tilt of the Lander toward the west. Actually, the terrain is more level than that at the Viking 1 site. The horizon toward the left of the panorama (northwest) appears featureless, indicating that it may be several kilometers distant. The sky at the center (east) is bright because the sun was above but out of the picture at 10 AM Mars time. Toward the right (southeast), the rocks that are silhouetted against the skyline indicate that the horizon is much nearer, probably because of a slight rise in that area of the terrain. The circular high-gain antenna at the right has clots of fine-grained material adhering to the lower half, some of which appeared to have been sliding downward while the camera was scanning the area. At the extreme right, the banded appearance resulted because the camera continued to scan while it was no longer moving in azimuth.Source: WikiPedia

Viking 1 panorama in 360°
This is the first panoramic view by Viking 1 from the surface of Mars. The out of focus spacecraft component toward left center is the housing for the Viking sample arm, which is not yet deployed. Parallel lines in the sky are an artifact and are not real features. However, the change of brightness from horizon towards zenith and towards the right (west) is accurately reflected in this picture, taken in late Martian afternoon. At the horizon to the left is a plateau-like prominence much brighter than the foreground material between the rocks. The horizon features are approximately three kilometers (1.8 miles) away. At left is a collection of fine-grained material reminiscent of sand dunes. The dark sinuous markings in left foreground are of unknown origin. Some unidentified shapes can be perceived on the hilly eminence at the horizon towards the right. A horizontal cloud stratum can be made out halfway from the horizon to the top of the picture. At left is seen the low gain antenna for receipt of commands from the Earth. The projections on or near the horizon may represent the rims distant impact craters. In right foreground are color charts for Lander camera calibration, a mirror for the Viking magnetic properties experiment and part of a grid on the top of the Lander body. At upper right is the high gain dish antenna for direct communication between landed spacecraft and Earth. Toward the right edge is an array of smooth fine-grained material which shows some hint of ripple structure and may be the beginning of a large dune field off to the right of the picture, which joins with dunes seen at the top left in this 300° panoramic view. Some of the rocks appear to be undercut on one side and partially buried by drifting sand on the other.Source: WikiPedia
