|MONTREAL, CANADA (June 28, 2022)—Emmy award-winning immersive production studio, Felix & Paul Studios, announces its collaboration with Meta Quest and distribution partners worldwide for the immersive live-streaming of NASA’s first major milestone in its plan to send humankind back to the Moon. The Artemis I launch is currently set to take place in August of this year. This up close livestream will give viewers a one-of-a-kind front-row seat from the launch pad, enabling them to take part in this historic event by bringing them closer than any human to the SLS rocket.
Space Explorers: Artemis Ascending will be captured in 8K, 360° virtual reality format exclusively by Felix & Paul Studios and will be livestreamed on:
“The Apollo missions were televised worldwide in black and white, but the Artemis generation will experience the upcoming Moon missions, and future Mars missions, in an immersive and experiential way. This first immersive live-streaming is part of our ongoing mission which started with our Space Explorers series, to bring the public along for the ride on humanity’s next giant leap in human space exploration,” said Felix Lajeunesse, co-founder and Creative Director of Felix & Paul Studios.
Felix & Paul Studios is behind the Emmy-Winning Space Explorers: The ISS Experience, the largest media project ever filmed in space, available in VR headsets on Meta Quest and through the world’s largest immersive and interactive VR exhibit, THE INFINITE.
NASA Artemis I is an unmanned, maiden flight of the integrated Space Launch System rocket and Orion spacecraft which will venture thousands of miles beyond the Moon to verify system performance in hopes of bringing astronauts –- including the first woman and the first person of color – back to the lunar surface by 2024.
