VSee is NASA’s official video platform for astronauts aboard the International Space Station. It’s also a key tool for the Simulation Exploration Experience (SEE), a university-level modeling and simulation experience of a lunar mission that is spearheaded by NASA.
They just finished up an exciting sixth SEE, which had teams from Brazil, Canada, US, UK, Germany, France and Italy all participating. They tell us that SEE is “heavily, dependent on VSee, of course…VSee proves to be extraordinarily useful, and we appreciate its security. The teams like it.”
Our contact wrote us in mid-March:
Several will be participating at the virtual Engineering Center at the University of Liverpool including, not only the Liverpool team, but students and faculty from both FACENS in Brazil and Brunel outside London. The other teams, and our NASA team, are participating remotely.
All the tag-up and testing as well as communication between teams relies on VSee for the audio-visual support. Teams recognize one another when they do meet, even when it has been somewhat unexpected. It proved so today when the students from Brazil arrived in Liverpool…
This year was also special in that, for the first time, two former “alumni” were etching distributed simulation and sat as Faculty Advisors of new SEE teams — one from UAH now teaching at Mid-Western State University in Texas and the other from MIT teaching at Stevens.
Thank you for all your support, you have made a huge contribution– enabling teams to, often, play well over their heads.
The NASA team also got to reprise the SEE 2016 simulated lunar mission in their Simulation for Space Exploration Symposia, as part of the SCS SpringSim Multiconference, which took place April 2-5 in Pasadena.
VSee is proud to play an important role in bringing together the future minds of lunar and space exploration!
