Launch into space with this BBC spacewalk experience.

Have you ever dreamed of walking in space? Well now your dreams can finally come true, thanks to the latest release of a VR spacewalk experience from the BBC.

Inspired by NASA and ESA training programs and the experiences of real astronauts, Home – A VR Spacewalk enables you would-be astronaut to embark on a spacewalk 250 miles above Earth’s surface, something only 217 people have ever done in real-life. You are tasked with making a repair on the outside of the International Space Station, before being confronted with a terrifying emergency situation. You’ll even be able to monitor your heart rate as you plunge into the emergency scenario, using a jet-pack to make your way home to the International Space Station.

Rewind collaborated with the BBC Science, BBC Learning and BBC Digital Storytelling to create the cinematic and fully interactive 15-minute VR experience.

The experience was built in 1:1 scale within Unreal Engine. You can check out a short behind the scenes below:
