ABOUT THE SERIES
Space Explorers: The ISS Experience is a multiplatform, immersive production filmed by astronauts aboard the International Space Station, produced by Felix & Paul Studios in association with TIME.
An unprecedented collaboration with NASA, The ISS Experience utilizes custom-built virtual reality cameras—engineered to operate in zero-gravity. Astronauts have filmed over 200 hours of footage capturing their life in space.
The next milestone of this project will occur when the astronauts attach a new, custom-built camera to the 50-foot-long robotic arm outside the space station. Nothing of this scope, magnitude, or resolution has ever been attempted in the history of human spaceflight. The footage captured while floating 250 miles above the earth, at an unfathomable pace of 17,500 miles per hour, will give audiences a once in a lifetime perspective of our planet, along with the astronauts who toil to perform this important work.
The ISS Experience is an intimate and thought-provoking story that sheds light on the day-to-day life of this, most distant, but 2-decade long outpost of humanity.
Featuring astronauts David Saint-Jacques (Canadian Space Agency), Anne McClain (NASA), Nick Hague (NASA), Christina H. Koch (NASA), Jessica U. Meir (NASA), Luca Parmitano (European Space Agency), Hazza Al Mansouri (United Arab Emirates) and Andrew “Drew” Morgan (NASA).
