Immersive Science Documentary We Are Stars Now On Rift and Vive

Way back in July 2015 VRFocus reported on award winning CG animation studio NSC Creative debuting its documentary virtual reality (VR) experience We Are Stars at the National Space Centre in Leicester, UK. Since then very little had been heard of the experience but now its been launched on Steam for Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and OSVR.

We Are Stars, follows on from the studios previous works We Are Astronomers (narrated by David Tennant) and We Are Aliens (narrated by Rupert Grint), with the former narrated Hollywood actor Andy Serkis (The Lord Of The Rings, Planet Of The Apes).  A science documentary experience that supports both VR head-mounted displays (HMDs) and dome screens in full spherical 360° high frame rate stereoscopic 3D 8k x 8k resolution, it seeks to answer some of the biggest questions of all time. What are we made of? Where did it all come from?
