On December 4-5, 2017, Explore Mars, Inc. hosted the 1st AR/VR and Space Exploration Workshop at the Washington Plaza Hotel in Washington, D.C.  Sponsored by Aerojet Rocketdyne, this workshop brought together professionals representing the fields of space exploration, science, and mission design; virtual and augmented reality; technology; and many other disciplines to discuss the opportunities and challenges for utilizing VR/AR in future missions to Mars and elsewhere in the solar system.
Within the next couple of months, a special white paper will be released that will highlight the results of this workshop as well as provide recommendations on 1) How can AR/VR technologies be utilized most effectively in space exploration, 2) What are natural areas of collaboration between the VR/AR industry and space exploration, 3) What are the major obstacles to effectively utilize VR/AR in space exploration, 4) What can the VR/AR Working Group do to best facilitate these collaborations?
