NASA is planning to get human beings up to the Red Planet at some point during the 2030s. But second-man-on-the-moon Buzz Aldrin wants to give everyone a taste of the trip before then. Aldrin is creating a virtual Reality movie called Cycling Pathways to Mars. Aldrin has long been pushing for us to make the trip in the near future and worked with NASA on a Mars HoloLens experience last year. There’s a lot of work and research to be done before any of this film is going to become a reality of course. But VR experiences like this one are likely to play an important role in prepping astronauts for the trip and giving the rest of us an idea of what life might be like on the Red Planet.
