A team of researchers leads by Kimberly Kowal Arcand of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics (CfA) and the Center for Computation and Visualization at Brown University have begun development of a one-of-a-kind VR experience that utilizes data from NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory mission,

infrared data provided by the Spitzer Space Telescope, and optical data from various other telescopes to render a VR simulation of the youngest known supernova remnant in the Milky Way Galaxy, referred to as Cassiopeia A.

Roughly 15 to 20 times the total mass of the sun, the 400-year-old dead star was first rendered in 3-D by NASA using optical and X-ray data.

It was based off these initial renderings that Arcand and her team were able to build an immersive VR experience using multiple visualization platforms, including Min VR and VTK.

“Our universe is dynamic and 3-D, but we don’t get that when we are constantly looking at things” in two dimensions, spoke Arcand.

“Astronomers have long studied supernova remnants to better understand exactly how stars produce and disseminate many of the elements observed on Earth and in the cosmos at large.”

The colorful interactive experience allows users to explore the various portions of the cosmic graveyard and learn more about the science behind the intense spectacle.
