(RDMag)  Thomas Grubb, an engineer at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, is leading a team to develop six multidisciplinary pilot projects highlighting the potential of VR and AR applications that could be used by NASA in the future. The team, which includes students from the University of Maryland, College Park and Bowie State University, aims to create NASA-oriented applications that can be used by engineers.
Ted Swanson, a senior technologist for strategic integration for Goddard’s Office of the Chief Technologist, said in a statement. “However, recently there have been substantial developments in VR/AR hardware and software that may allow us to use this technology for scientific and engineering applications.”
