Instead and for the time being, the Monash Immersive Visualisation Platform at Monash University is supporting Sarah Jane Pell , mission Artist-in-Residence and Journalist, Mars Desert Research Station, Crew 188 ("International Space University").
Sarah is carrying one of our beautiful new 360 surround and 3D cameras to the MDRS, where she will be part of the crew of six International Space University alumni and faculty participating in a Mars analog simulation mission and running collaborative research projects.
Sarah has the fantastic opportunity to not only document the valuable research that Crew 188 ISU will be undertaking at the MDRS and carry out her own research in astronautics and performance, but also to see and record surround footage of the rare Lunar trifecta of a "super blue blood moon" occuring on 31 January 2018.
Safe travels Sarah and colleagues, and we look forward to following MDRS Crew 188 over the next 10 days.
