As part of the ESAC-ESA (European Space Astronomy Centre of the European Space Agency) educational project CESAR (Cooperation through Education in Science and Astronomy Research) we have been developing Science Case Web-Tools to complement the educational products of the project. This new software is specifically designed both to ease the task of solving the Science Cases and to make them more fun and attractive to students.
We have recently tested our new app and although it needs further development it is already functional. As good as it sounds, just turn on your phone and be ready to see Augmented Reality Spacecrafts wherever you point.
On the occasion of Herschel end of post-operations event at ESAC (European Space Astronomy Centre), the Space Division of Nubalo Studios, as part of the CESAR project, and in collaboration with the ESDC (ESAC Science Data Centre) has created a Virtual Reality Application to commemorate the mission, approaching Herschel’s observations to the public. With this app you can watch some videos of the mission and access information about the observatory, but by far, the best function is a 360º HiPS map with PACS and SPIRE observations.
On August 21st 2017 a total solar eclipse occurred, and at Space Robotics, we had to do something about it. To help those in the USA enjoy it, and to approach it to anyone elsewhere, we built the 2017 Total Solar Eclipse App.
If these images already look great, try to imagine them in a 360º Spherical Planetary Projector! We have recently designed a software and interface for this special kind of projector and its ready for an educational use as well as to liven up the room.
As part of our strong commitment to education and scientific dissemination, we have designed a physical simulator and demonstrator of the legendary Ariane 5 rocket. The model is interactive and shows the different stages of the rocket, it’s perfect to be used in museums, schools or other centres.
Once again we bring you a new 3D model of a satellite, this time, Sentinel-5P, the latest launch of the Copernicus programme.
