Description: MDRS VR (Mars Desert Research Station Virtual Reality) is an engineering-grade simulation of future human Mars exploration developed by The Mars Society, the world’s largest nonprofit organization dedicated to the human exploration of Mars.

Review: ‘MarsVR: Mars Desert Research Station VR’ is a slightly interactive experience in which you get a short tour (about 5 mins long) of the ‘Mars Desert Research Station’ in Hanksville, Utah, Earth. While there isn’t enough educational content here it was still kind of interesting and you can at least explore it yourself but without text or narrations, it is kind of pointless and you will soon find yourself like I was wondering the glitched-out mountains and rocks that surround it. It is at least free and could be used in an educational setting, but I do think it needs a lot more content added to it even if that is just the odd text blocks and 2D pop-up video.
