Virtual reality camera Vuse VR has been selected to capture 360-degree video on the International Space Station by NASA and National Geographic.

The camera will be used by Expedition 53 astronaut Paolo Nespoli of the European Space Agency to capture the footage.

This video will then be used for a new 2018 National Geographic series called ‘One Strange Rock,’ which documents life in the space station.

CEO of Humaneyes Shahar Bin-Nun said: “This is an incredibly exciting time for us. We are delighted to have been selected by and associated with two of the world’s leading and most adventurous organisations.

“Partnering with NASA and National Geographic for this project will result in some incredible footage captured by our VR camera, showcasing its true potential.”

The camera was sent into space on the Cygnus cargo spacecraft along with 3,500kg of cargo including science experiments, ingredients for a Thanksgiving dinner and gifts from the astronauts’ families. This can be seen in the video below.

The Vuze VR camera has eight full HD cameras to capture 360-degree video in 4K resolution alongside four internal microphones in order to create a 3D audio field.

Other features include integrated remote control via a mobile app, up to two hours of video capture on a single charge and a lightweight design.
