Immergersi nell’universo

In prima fila davanti alle meraviglie del cosmo

Hadrien Gurnel, software engineer EPFL's Laboratory for Experimental Museology (eM+) explores the most detailed 3D map of the universe with the virtual reality software VIRUP, Virtual Reality Universe Project, in St-Sulpice near Lausanne, Switzerland, Tuesday, Oct. 12, 2021. Researchers at one of Switzerland’s leading universities are releasing open-source beta software that allows for virtual visits through the cosmos -– up to the International Space Station, past the Moon, Saturn or exoplanets, over galaxies and beyond. The VIRUP project blends observed data with computer simulations in a project billed as the most extensive of its kind to allow extensive visualization of the heavens.

Gli scienziati del Laboratorio di Astrofisica (LASTRO) del Politecnico Federale di Tecnologia, in Svizzera, hanno sviluppato il software di realtà virtuale VIRUP (Virtual Reality Universe Project) che permette l’esperienza di immergersi nella mappa in 3 dimensioni del nostro universo.

Il software open source VIRUP ricostruisce, in tempo reale, l’universo virtuale basandosi sui più dettagliati dati astrofisici e cosmologici contemporanei.
