Visualization Tool for Astronomy Datacubes

Currently in development. Prototype available for demonstration. 

AstroCubeVR is a virtual reality application that lets you and your collaborators meet in a shared virtual space and jointly explore 3D datacubes of astronomical observation, such as nebulae.  A prototype version of the application has been developed, and we are looking for collaborators to work with to extend AstroCubeVR’s capablities. 

AstroGateVR in Action – We received very positive feedback from astronomers who experienced our demostration at the 241st  American Astronomical Society meeting, January 2023.
