Using virtual reality, you could explore the surface of Mars from the safety of planet Earth.
The Mars Society, a space advocacy group supporting the human exploration of Mars, has partnered with virtual reality (VR) companies to launch a crowdfunding campaign for MarsVR, a project that aims to create a VR simulation of what it would be like to experience the surface of the Red Planet. The campaign, which aims to raise a minimum $100,000 for the project over the next six weeks, is being held on the crowdfunding platform Indiegogo; you can find details here.
