SpaceX rocket launch visible on VR on ETH-based platform

The breakthrough launch of the SpaceX rocket could be watched on VR goggles on a live stream provided by Decentraland (MANA).

A new cosmic chapter?

On May 30, 2020, the Falcon 9 rocket with the Crew Dragon ship, with 2 astronauts, launched. This is the first flight into space organized by a private company, and the flight of the first, newly designed spacecraft in over 40 years. In addition, since 2011 there has been no launch of a space mission from the United States and they were dependent on the prices imposed by Russia. This is going to change now. It may mean the beginning of the process of commercialization of space, or more precisely, of low orbit around the Earth. 

The mission was successful and the astronauts were lucky to reach orbit.

Nobody wanted to miss it

The first launch of a space vehicle built-in and launched from the United States wasn’t just viewable on YouTube or on TV. Decentraland announced the possibility of watching the launch of the rocket live in VR technology. 

The exceptional launch of the Elon Musks’ rocket, on the Decetraland platform, was observed by over 12,000 users.

Decentraland – decentralized virtual reality platform

Decentraland is a game based on Ethereum blockchain. This world is created from plots of land. The land is designated on the basis of Cartesian coordinates (x,y) The plots belong to members of the community thanks to MANA tokens, for which real estate can also be bought. MANA tokens are not exchangeable like the Cryptokitties.

This is not the first big event

Decentraland has already organized large events for players in virtual reality in the past. At a time when many people were stuck at home due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the platform rushed to help. The virus stopped the organization of huge sports events, conferences, and meetings around the world. However, it did not stop the Coinfest conference, which was held in early April. A store was set up on the Decentraland platform to serve as a virtual conference venue. It lasted for 4 days and users had many opportunities to win MANA tokens, see nearby museums and art galleries available in the virtual kingdom. They also had the opportunity to go out to the Sugar Club nightclub, or free entry to the Ross Tower – a digital tribute to the imprisoned founder of Silk Road, and many other attractions. In the future, will we be more willing to go for a walk through Decentraland than to the nearby forest?
