Galaxy Cruise creates an immersive 5D experience where you are able to recreate the atmosphere of MARS with navigation and visualization along with temperature and pressure. It uses Unity 5 on Oculus for visualization and IBM Bluemix service with 2 API's to capture NASA raw data for input.

This project is solving the SpaceBot Stereo Vision challenge.


Galaxy Cruise primarily recreates an atmosphere based on certain inputs from NASA. We figured that if this can be done for NASA, this can be done for any set of inputs to recreate different atmoshpheres. The applicability and implementation of the project can be across different industries such as video gaming, colleges and universities, healthcare and of course space and planet research.
