At the nexus of learning and innovation

Stellar Evolution: A virtual reality experience

Ever wanted to get a grip on how stars form and evolve over millions of years? Cyntia Franco and Matthew Burgess have been working on an exciting new Virtual Reality (VR) project called Stellar Evolution, which aims to give a visceral experience of stellar phenomena.

Putting on a virtual reality headset, Stellar Evolution puts you in a world where you can simulate how stars form and evolve. You can even walk up to and pick up a star, as if it were a basketball, and inspect it from different angles.
