Space Explorers: THE INFINITE is an awe-inspiring and fully immersive experience that will transport you to the depths of Space and back. You’ll get to feel the sensation of being in Space alongside the astronauts, and admire mind-blowing views of the Earth in the only immersive expedition to take you inside and outside the International Space Station. Ready for liftoff?
This exclusive voyage now open at Craneway Pavilion in the historical Ford Point Waterfront is a one-of-a-kind event. Only 250 astronauts have experienced life on the International Space Station in the last 20 years, and you’ll get to realistically emulate their epic and emotional adventure. Fully immersed in virtual reality headsets, you can simultaneously explore the ISS, interact with one another in the form of avatars while being able to access EMMY award-winning cinematic VR content from Space Explorers: The ISS Experience* based on the biggest media project ever produced in Space.
The use of the never-before-seen footage filmed by actual astronauts on the station combined with several mediums (virtual reality and projections) creates an exceptionally realistic experience. Throughout the 60-minute journey, your every sense will be engaged allowing you to discover life in orbit. And if that’s blowing your mind, you haven’t seen anything yet.
You’ll get to explore a life-sized 3-D model recreation of the International Space Station, rendered to be as true to life as possible. The virtual reality journey will transport you to Space and back to Earth, providing a breathtaking view of our blue planet.
While the experience is a true cinematic masterpiece, it also touches our physical realm. At the exhibit, take in exclusive art from world renowned Japanese artist Ryoji Ikeda surrounding the themes of space and the interconnectedness of our multidimensional worlds.
Space Explorers: THE INFINITE is truly unlike any other exhibition examining space. And after acclaimed runs in Montreal, Houston and Tacoma, the experience is finally open in Northern California! In Houston, the audience found the adventure to be a magically ethereal experience that stunned viewers—whether it be physically or emotionally.
Participants were often brought to tears by the immersive nature of the event, specifically when Earth made its glorious appearance through their virtual reality headsets.
