The Tangible Universe by University of Applied Sciences Wuerzburg-Schweinfurt
A VR app for laymen and astronomers that visualizes X-ray data of astronomical objects from the ESA satellite XMM-Newton. Data of >1,000 X-ray sources generate unique data objects. Their sizes, colors or haptics represent observational parameters, e.g., brightness, class, or energy. An observer can move freely within the galaxy and explore each object to study its radiation. A feature to sort the objects based on their parameters allows for discovering underlying structures of the data set.
