Take a Space Walk in 360 VR

If you have ever wanted to see what it is really like to be on an extravehicular activity or EVA aboard the International Space Station (ISS), wait no longer. For the first time ever you can now take a space walk in 360 VR. Grab your VR headset and click play on the video below to be transported to the ISS. 

Russian cosmonauts, Ryazansky and Yurchikhin can be seen hurling a pair of Tanyusha nanosatellites, as well as a round Sputnik-like TS530-Zerkalo that will be taking measurements in low Earth orbit, just out of the way of the space station. Using several 360 degree virtual reality cameras, the cosmonauts were able to record this one of a kind view of Earth. 

We are not sure on the cameras used at this time, however we do know that Entapano fisheye lenses were mounted to the cameras.
