Seeking Pluto’s Frigid Heart
A virtual reality film for the NYTVR platform that transports readers 3 billion miles from the warmth of the sun to Pluto.
Using historic data collected billions of miles away by NASA and the Lunar Planetary Institute, we've created a stereoscopic Virtual Reality experience that brings viewers to Pluto. They are able to examine the New Horizons spacecraft up close as it zooms past, soar over the planets surface observing never-before-seen icy mountains and terrain features, and touch down on the planet at various points of interest as its moons hover over the horizon.
