Explore Mars in Virtual Reality with This YouTube Video

If you’ve wondered what life might be like on Mars, a new virtual simulation may give you a good idea. The United Arab Emirates (UAE) has put together a 360-degree experience that can be viewed on YouTube. The video features a mockup of a Martian city that has been given the name “Wisdom,” along with showcasing projected mining and laboratory projects imagined to be a part of the city in the year 2117.

Viewers can enjoy the experience through a virtual reality headset, but they don’t have to have special equipment to participate. While watching the video, a movement of the mouse can help viewers take a look around the surface of the fictional city.

Along with mines and labs, a promotional video shows spider-like robots moving around Wisdom. The video was created as part of a demonstration at the World Government Summit, but it has now been published for mass consumption.

The UAE has previously expressed interest in exploring the Red Planet, including setting up a prototype of the city in the desert. But despite its interest, the UAE is new to the space game, having yet to build a rocket to tackle the challenge.
