Using multimedia resources found online, develop a virtual experience that would allow someone to experience a past or upcoming rocket launch as if they were observing it from a few miles away (i.e. a close, but safe distance from the launch pad). If possible, convey the impact that local/global/space weather has on a launch.


X-Press Launch Pad is a project made in NASA Space Apps Challenge la Marsa 2016, it consists of making feeling a rocket launch more familiar to people, making it easier to access using VR. We designed an app that simulates the experience, while using a relatively cheap technology in order to make it more accessible to people around the world.
