Second Step - From Moon to Mars and Beyond (Germany, 10 min 48 sec)
Directed by: Joerg Courtial
Man has always sought out new horizons. Only 12 astronauts have ever left Earth to set foot on a different celestial body: the Moon. In this intriguing Virtual Reality film (360° / stereo 3D), the viewer gets the outstanding opportunity to set off for a fascinating VR journey into space, visiting a number of thrilling settings of current and future space missions, such as the landing spot of Apollo 11, the planned Lunar Orbital Platform-Gateway and the Shackleton-Crater at the South Pole of the Moon. The film conveys an authentic sensation of how it must feel to float through space and see it through an astronaut's eye - promising a highly intense experience. It climaxes in the visit of the Mars - a desert planet of superlatives, with the most immense volcanoes and the deepest canyon in the solar system. The project has been produced with expert advice of the European Space Agency (ESA).
