NASA propose to do self in space

NASA is marking the 15th launch anniversary of its Spitzer Space Telescope with the release of a VR tour of the TRAPPIST-1 system, and a cosmic selfie app. Spitzer blasted off from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida, on August 25, 2003 atop a United Launch Alliance Delta II rocket. Examples include the center of the Milky Way galaxy (Earth's home galaxy) and the Orion Nebula, a famous star-birth region located about 1,350 light-years from Earth.

NASA's space telescope Spitzer has captured stunning images of galaxies, dying stars, newborn stars and more for the last 15 years, and to celebrate the spacecraft's anniversary, NASA released a new app that puts you in the other-worldly images captured by Spitzer, Hubble and Chandra space telescopes.

There are now 30 eye-catching images to choose from, including distant star clusters such as the Crab Nebula, Cassiopeia A and the Helix Nebula, and Nasa says more images from human spaceflight missions will be added in the future. The catalog will be expanded with images from other scientific missions and human space flights from NASA.

The universe is at your fingertips with two new digital products from NASA.

Apart from this app, the space agency also launched a Virtual Reality (VR) app which would take you on a tour of the TRAPPIST-1 planetary system. This makes them easier to study in a telescope, because they are relatively close to us. Spitzer detected the planets and gathered information to help scientists find out what their composition would be. The TRAPPIST-1 system is located so far away that even the strong telescopes can't directly observe these planets.

The VR app will be available for Oculus and Vive through the Spitzer mission website and will soon be available through the Oculus store. The Spitzer YouTube page also has a video about TRAPPIST-1 that can be viewed on a desktop or a smartphone; you can also use a smartphone with a 360-degree viewer, such as Google Cardboard. However, the new virtual reality app shows artists' renditions of what its seven planets possibly look like. "Users of the app are navigated around five of the seven planets, surrounded by the blackness of space and the faint lights of distant stars".
