In preparation for arrival at the Psyche asteroid, teams are working to create a Virtual Reality experience on another planetary body, using stereo pairs and color (if available) from the team’s choice of existing datasets. The purpose is to showcase the actual data and what is already known about other non-Earth bodies and prepare for the datasets that will be returned from Psyche.
