NASA is allowing for people with virtual reality headsets to watch high quality, VR 2160p video footage for their astronauts in training. Thanks to this VR footage the majority of us, who would never go to space, can at least experience the next best thing.

The great thing about virtual reality is that it helps convey the feeling of space better than a picture or video could. Our brains have never experienced a lack of gravity and thus video footage of space can almost seem unreal. It is harder for the brain to deny what is happening when it can look all around and see the effects. While you won't go floating around your house after putting the headset on you may feel like you are. VR can do a great job at tricking the mind. Users will be able to place themselves inside of a training session and be able to enjoy the full, immersive experience. 

While the released footage isn't exactly in space (we'll have to wait for that) it is in a training center which has simulations for astronauts in training. The footage is able to be accessed on NASA's YouTube Channel, though the experience won't be nearly as immersive without a VR headset.
