Check Out This 3D Video Tour of the International Space Station

Don't worry! There's a 2D version, too.

This week, the European Space Agency released an extensive narrated tour of the International Space Station. Here’s a cool bonus: it’s in 3D, so if you’ve got a pair of 3D glasses kicking around somewhere, you can immerse yourself even more in this experience. It’s in Anaglyph 3D, so you basically just need a pair of red/cyan glasses, and that should do the trick.

I can’t test it out myself, since I don’t own a pair of those. But don’t worry; the video is also available in 2D on the ESA’s website, for those of you who don’t have the means to enjoy a 3D video.

The 13-minute video shows the day-to-day life of the astronauts who live on the space station, from the work they do to the foods they eat. It also includes some beautiful views of what they can see from the station, and also what the ins and outs of the station hallways look like. Seems like a pleasant place to live and work, and it makes for a nice visit, even if only in video form!
