Project iET (Immersive Exoplanet Telescope)
Created by Team ET Goes Home
Recipient of the Community Engagement and Education Award
2018 International Space Apps Challenge (Pasadena, CA)
Mixed Reality immersive experience of known exoplanets with smart filtering for locating earth-like exoplanets. This app will provide context + presence of the planets + star systems, giving an alternate way for scientists to look at the data.
We gratefully acknowledge the assets we used came from Galaxy Explorer and some scripts and components from the pre-release of the Mixed Reality Toolkit vNEXT. QuickSheet was used to read XLS spread sheets into Unity as collections of Scriptable Objects.
This project has made use of the NASA Exoplanet Archive, which is operated by the California Institute of Technology, under contract with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration under the Exoplanet Exploration Program. Additioanl data was obtained from the Extrasolar Planets Encyclopaedia.
